Tear Drop Memorial reviews
The view is so good. But there is not too much activities to do there. It is good for taking photos of the memorial more »
Tear Drop Memorial. It’s at the end of a cruise port diving area. It seems like you drive to an area you’re not supposed to be in. Just keep driving! Well worth it. Beautiful!! more »
This is a very beautiful Memorial to commemorate the 9/11 tragedy. It was presented to the people of America from the people of Russia. I had previously seen very little about the sculpture other than a few photographs, nothing in the media or glossy brochures. As a sculpture it is easy to make an interpretation, it is a single enormous, poignant teardrop hanging between two very tall pillars. Its simplicity is its beauty. Paving stones throughout the extremely small park are engraved with messages, family names, memorials and names, this is a beautiful place.
Unless a cruise ship is arriving or departing it's likely you'll be the only visitors. No one knows it's there. Worth the drive, emotionally and for the history. Nice view of Manhattan & Statue of Liberty.
