New York City | One World & 9/11 Memorial

Honor those who lost their lives in 9/11 with a visit to the One World Memorial and Museum. Later on, enjoy some free time to spend at leisure in Chelsea Market!


Day 1 - New York City

The National September 11 Memorial Museum serves as the country’s principal institution concerned with exploring the implications of the events of 9/11, documenting the impact of those events, and exploring 9/11’s continuing significance. The Museum displays artifacts associated with the events of 9/11 and presents stories of loss and recovery.

The 9/11 Memorial’s twin reflecting pools are each nearly an acre in size and feature the largest manmade waterfalls in North America, and sit within the footprints of where the Twin Towers once stood. The name of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed on bronze panels around the edges of the Memorial pools. This serves as a reminder of the largest loss of life resulting from foreign attacks on American soil.

Spend some time this afternoon at Chelsea Market (for lunch on your own) which is part of the High-Line Infrastructure.  Chelsea Market is the original National Biscuit Company complex. Today, it is the home to many restaurants and food stores. Visit the stores, get lunch on your own, or walk the High-Line.

This afternoon, start by ascending to the top of the World Trade Center (which is the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere) to the One World Observatory, then look toward the horizon and feel the city’s invincible spirit.  With a 360° view, take in the panoramic sights of New York City and beyond!
