Last May was my first visit to the site since lunch at the top of the World Trade Center in April 2001. Not quite finished …. mostly the museum …. but an experience not to be missed. A short ride and short walk from Grand Central Station. Allow yourself plenty of time, so as not to be rushed.
Excellent website where you can get advance passes and learn more about the names and how they are arranged at the twin reflecting pools: http://www.911memorial.org/
