We took the ferry to Staten Island to enjoy the views, have lunch and then get back, and I saw there was this memorial close to the shopping mall we passed by, so we headed there to take a look.
The place was empty except for another couple, maybe because of the cold weather, and the structure was nice, although I expected more readings about what happened etc.
We checked the names of the poor people who died, took a few pics and left. Maybe because it is winter, but the place looked sad and lonely.

What they've done here is amazing job, it is a one unique place and the design is amazing mind blowing. A good memorial to remember Staten Islanders and it is facing NYC. The view of the city is also cool.

My husband and I had taken the ferry to get into the city that day and when we got off I mentioned that the Postcards Memorial was right next to us. So before we went to our car we took the short walk over to check out the memorial.
There is no line or entrance to get in. It is free and open to the public to come and observe, reflect, and pay respect to those that lost their lives on that day.
The design is unique. If you look between the two sides you are looking at Manhattan where the Twin Towers used to stand. On looking closer at the two walls you can see names.
It was very peaceful while we were there reflecting on where we were on September 11th.
If you are in the Staten Island area it is worth a moment of your time.

This was designed and built to be a quiet solemn place to reflect the loss of life that took place on 9-11 and it has been for years. Now the city government has destroyed all that making it hard to get to, endless construction and lots of noise all around with different and questionable projects all around it.

Go on a weekend, early in the morning for your best chance.

An amazingly beautiful memorial to all the Staten Islanders who lost their lives on 9/11. You must go across the street and just look straight between the structure to see where the World Trade Center once stood. The marble is etched to represent the face of each person who perished...very touching .....and sad!!!

Very beautifully done Memorial to the 911 victims from Staten Island... Right in back of the Richmond County ballpark it overlooks lower Manhattan where most of these people lost their lives... The silhouettes are amazing... I have to give the borough president at the time James Molinaro a lot of credit ...

We included a small trip to staten island during our visit in NYC, and we were glad to do so. After you reach it by the ferry, the memorial is only a couple of minutes walk, just by the water. It's interesting to see the details put into it, you can see the names and faces of each service man and woman that passed away during the tragic events of 9/11.

Also you could enjoy Manhattan skyline in front you, so it's a double win :)

We were staying on Staten Island during our visit to nyc. We saw this walking to ferry from parking lot. The next day decided to take the time to visit. The entire design,location are amazing. The view from the center looking to manhattan aligns with location of former World Trade Center. The profiles of the people lost in the terrorist attacks is a lasting tribute to those people. To be able to not only read a name but to see what they looked like in profile was deeply impacting. Not just a name but a real person If you are in the area this is very worth your while. If just taking a ride on the ferry from NYC then back get off and go see it.

STATEN ISLAND NY - Surprise and awe were one traveling couple's reactions to the discovery, during an impromptu trip to Staten Island in April 2014, of the gracefully designed and peaceful Staten Island September 11 Memorial. It is a place to sit and reflect on the that day's tragic events and lives lost, but it also is a quiet and superb vantage point from which to watch the sea-faring world float by the island on its way in and out of New York.

Reach the island by riding the Staten Island Ferry from the South Ferry terminal on South Street at Whitehall Street in Lower Manhattan. The ferries are free and operate around the clock, usually three times hourly. The ride itself takes about 25-30 minutes depending on weather conditions; the ferry is enclosed and heated. On a clear day the trip across the Hudson River and the Upper Bay offers some great views of the New York and New Jersey skylines.

Passengers arrive at the island's St. George Terminal. As you leave the ferry and enter the departure hall, turn right (northwest) and exit out its side doors headed toward a paved walking path that follows the shoreline and Bank Street. It's a short walk, only 2-10ths of a mile, from the ferry to the memorial. On your way, you'll pass the outfield side of the baseball stadium that is home to the Staten Island Yankees (on the left).

Don't limit your trip to the island to the memorial alone. It's a great way to start a visit, but there's much more to see and do.

It's nice to see this memorial, but don't visit this area after dark. Don't be fooled by the come-ons you see advertising tourism on Staten Island. This area is called St. George, and it's a business district during the day, and a hellhole at night.
