We walked about 5 blocks up into Jersey City and caught the subway under the Hudson to the 911 Memorial. It is very impressive to walk out into that station.
The two reflecting pools are each almost an acre in size and are on the footprint of the towers. The waterfalls are considered the largest manmade falls in the US. The area is on 8 acres with 400 White Oak trees around. There were a lot of people, but did not seem crowded. The trees provided lots of shade.
We then visited the museum. It is build underground and is actually under the water falls.
It is very humbling to walk into exhibits. The museum explores the historic facts of the tragedy with many exhibits and monumental artifacts. It pays homage to the WTC victims, The Pentagon, and flight 93. It also recongnized the 1993 failed attempt of the bombing in the parking garage. The first responders and survivors were recongnized as well.
It was a very humbling and something we will never forget. It was a long day, we walked back to the train station and headed home.
