The 9/11 Memorial and Museum are the main platforms for remembrance and honor in respect to the events in 2001 at the World Trade Center.
Multimedia displays, archives, personal stories and commemorations to each victim of both the 2001 and 1993 attacks make this an informative, tasteful and respectful destination to educate visitors on one of our nation’s darkest memories.
The National September 11th Memorial is a more symbolic tribute to those who passed with breathtaking design from world-famous architects Michael Arad and Peter Walker. Twin reflecting pools at the bottom of the largest manmade waterfalls in North America are placed where the towers used to stand. Surrounding these pools are bronze panels inscribed with the names of every victim in the 2001 and 1993 attacks.
The 9/11 Memorial is located just a ten-minute walk from the Duane Street Hotel. Nearby sites include the Irish Hunger Memorial, Battery Park and the Freedom Tower.
