Staten Island September 11 Memorial
Landmark, Sculpture, Historic Site
Staten Island, NY 10301
- Offers a once-in-a-lifetime view of the lower Manhattan skyline, the memorial shows where the Twin Towers once stood and is right next to the home of the Staten Island Yankees and the Ferry Terminal.
- Designed by Masayuki Sono, the memorial features two large, thin white structures resembling wings or blooming flowers. 270 granite plaques each bear the name of a Staten Islander killed on 9/11.
- Architect Masayuki Sono created the slim, smooth structures, which resemble a pair of wings, to appear like oversize postcards, honoring the Staten Island victims of the 2001 terrorist attacks.
- Very quiet, perfect to spend some time and gather your thoughts. Worth a stop if you are passing by.
- Very peaceful place and great for photoshoots
- Beautiful structure remembering those who died on 9/11 including my cousin Frank FT Aquilino
- A little known memorial. Easy to get to from the Staten Island Ferry
- A place to reflect... And to remember...
