We went to St. Joseph's Chapel while in New York and were very impressed. The beauty of it is overwhelming. It is touching and heartwarming when one sits there wrapped in ones own thoughts of the history and the memories of the events of that area.

Walked to Ground Zero for the first time since the memorial was inaugurated and was disappointed with difficulty to get an overview of the site. Otherwise a place that recalls a lot of memories of the September 11th event.

The church is a place of respite after experiencing the sadness of the Memorial. It's a place of peace, a perfect place to appropriately commemorate the innocent and the heroes.

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
