Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial

Liberty State Park is the home to New Jersey’s Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial. The Memorial was dedicated on the 10th anniversary by designers Jessica Jamroz and Frederic Schwartz. It was made to honor the 749 people from New Jersey who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

This memorial consists of two identical steel walls that contain a list of names of those who died during these terrible attacks. It is a nice place to pay your respect for those who lost their lives and their loved ones.

New Jersey Railroad Terminal

The New Jersey Railroad Terminal is a very historic site. Throughout 1892 to 1954 many Europeans passed through to start their new lives in the United States. I found this railroad particularly interesting as this is how the Irish would have immigrated many years ago.

    I’ve never been to Liberty State Park, but it’s a place I’d love to visit. I’ve been to the Statue of Liberty so it’s only fair I make a stop here also.

    The Liberty State Park is indeed an interesting attraction in New York. It is a nice break from the usual modern attractions often raved about the city. The 9/11 Memorial is a special place to visit and honor those who died in one of history’s worst tragedies. I would love to visit the railroad terminal though – historic sites always have a lot of stories to tell and I love how it feels like you are walking through a time machine!

    I wish I had found this post just a couple of months ago. I visited New York for a few days in June and totally missed this park! I hadn’t heard about it before. It does look incredible, so hopefully I’ll be able to make it on the next visit!
