A grey and rainy day, but a good day to visit the September 11 Memorial Museum. We drove to Jersey City, leaving the car there and took a quick 5-minute ferry ride across to Manhattan and a stone’s throw from the 9/11 site.
The memorial is located at the World Trade Center site, on the former location of the Twin Towers, which were destroyed during the attacks. It is genius that the two pools are where to towers once stood. The museum, which goes underground and has some of the original structures from the towers, is extremely well thought out and the information and artifacts beautifully presented. I thought I would be much more affected by the reminders, but think the whole thing is so strongly etched in my memory from watching events as they happened on TV, that most of the pictures and images were familiar to me. Nevertheless, a sad and poignant place, but a lovely memorial for all those whose lives were taken on that fateful day.
