A nice monument to pay tribute to those that were killed in this terrible accident. After paying your respects you can take a walk along the beach to reflect of life.

I love going through this memorial whenever I am in NY. Although I was not directly affected by this crash you can almost feel the memories of these poor people. It is really surreal almost a calming effect. Worth the visit it is nicely done.

THE MEMORIAL This is a beautiful and big memorial-- and its location by the soft crashing of waves allows for a peaceful place to meditate despite the small irony of those same circumstances leading to the building the memorial. There are enough pieces to read...More
