We were able to go to the south end of Manhattan to see the new Freedom Tower and see the 9/11 Memorial. What a humbling experience. I had not seen pictures of what the memorial looked like but it felt fitting keeping the footprints of the original towers intact and making them into fountains. Really touching and beautiful.
One of the fountains in the shadow of the new Freedom Tower.
The new 9/11 museum which will open later in 2013 is also in the park adjancent to the tower footprints.
The names of those lost were engraved around the footprints of both towers.
While we were nearby, we also walked past the New York Stock Exchange.
And down to Battery Park to catch a view of the Statue of Liberty.
