Create an itinerary including World Trade Center's Liberty Park
At World Trade Center's Liberty Park, relax, reflect, and recharge in the midst of Manhattan's bustling downtown. Inspired by the iconic High Line, the park overlooks the National September 11 Memorial and Museum. Three stairways, a ramp from Greenwich Street and a pedestrian bridge lead into the park. The park's most memorable feature is the 6.1 m (20 ft) tall "living wall" made from periwinkle, Japanese spurge, winter creeper, sedge, and Baltic ivy. See the iconic Sphere, a bronze sculpture that survived the September 11 attacks, and the rebuilt Greek Orthodox Church that did not share the same fate. Notice the names of those who perished in 2001 terrorist attack engraved on the edge of the fountain. To plan New York City vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Incredible and moving memorial , Considering its a site of historic value and a graveyard to so many, We found it a bit tasteless to sell souvenirs of toy police cars and other tat at the site

  • Nice little park overlooking the WTC site provides seating for reflection. Also home to the statue commemorating the soldiers utilizing horses in Afghanistan.

  • The Statue of Liberty was great but the security checkpoint to get on the boat was less than stellar. Apparently you can have a small knife on the boat but not a pen made of aluminum that can be used to break glass, even though the TSA allows that pen to be carried onto jets that need their windows intact. BTW, there is no written rule on their signs warning that you can't have a pen that might be used to break glass. If they had at least identified glass breakers as prohibited I would've found a place to store my $50.00 pen. They give you little choice, you can choose to leave & return without your pen or give it to them to lock in a box they "don't have a key to" to return it to its rightful owner instead of whoever decides they want it from the security staff. I can kill with the knife blades they allow, but God forbid I break the window in a floating boat. Not happy with them at all. If they allowed a minus rating I'd give it to the security there. As a former police office & long time security director I fail to see good customer service at Liberty Park ferry terminal. Very unimpressed, seems they make the rules as they go along with no choice but to comply after standing in line for 2 hours.
  • Peaceful and Serene nice open space and plenty of places to sit and rest your feet have a snack or just some nice conversation. Maybe even get some reading in.
