NYC Activities | Visit the 9/11 Memorial
Visiting the 9/11 Memorial is an NYC Activity that both locals and NY Hotel guests find important.
A visit to the 9/11 Memorial is a NYC Activity that gives locals and guests at our NY Hotel a chance to reflect on the tragic Events of September 11, 2001 and pay their respects to the nearly 3,000 people who died that day.
About Visiting the 9/11 Memorial:
The 9/11 Memorial opened on the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center. Visiting the Memorial is a solemn NYC Activity that many guests at our NY Hotel do in order to pay their respects to the many men and women who died that day in 2001.
The 9/11 Memorial is made up of two reflecting pools that sit in the footprints of the Twin Towers. The pools, which are nearly an acre in size, also feature the largest manmade waterfalls on the continent. The name of every person who died during the attacks on 9/11 and during the World Trade Center attack that took place in February of 1993 is inscribed on bronze plaques that surround the pools.
The design for the 9/11 Memorial was selected from more than 5,200 entries. Architects Michael Arod and Peter Walker designed this lovely space. The NYC Activity is available daily from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and there is no charge to visit the Memorial. (Note that there is, however, an admission fee for the 9/11 Museum.)
Guided tours are available and can greatly enhance the experience of this NYC Activity. The tours are led by someone who was directly impacted by the events of 9/11. This could be a survivor, someone who lost a family member, or someone who lived nearby when the attacks took place.
