It's amazing to see how the skyline has changed. Before the towers came down I never imagined that I would ever see the city without those two towers sticking out of the southern part of Manhattan island. It took some time to get used to them not being there. When I was visiting New York recently I saw, from a distance, the new tower going up in their place. Time marches on but we have been irrevocably changed.Recommended for:

I'm not sure how to rate it, because it's not a 5-star spectacular site, and it's not a 1-star disappointment either. It's emotional, heartbreaking, and sobering - and if you have national pride, or if you're simply emotional like me, you'll be affected for awhile. I visited in 2006, so I haven't seen the 10th anniversary monuments, but I saw the vast empty space where the twin towers stood, a waving American flag against a stark blue sky, rubble and construction work behind fences, and childrens' artwork portraying their lost parents - and it all made me cry.Recommended for:

The National September 11th Memorial was open to the public as of September 12th, 2001. And the museum is supposed to open up on the 11th Anniversary of the murderous, dastardly attack on the World Trade Center. The Memorial is very sad, and very somber, but it stands as a testament to the never-say-die, American Spirit.
