I visited the 9/11 memorial a few months ago and was in two minds as where to post these pictures or not. Not wanting to be disrespectful as it is a place of mourning and tragic loss.
I dont have anything deep, poignant or life changing to say. But I remember where I was when I found out about the attacks in 2001. I visited New York City and ground zero for the first time in 2008.
I visited with my family and our hotel was in the financial district and we could see it from our room. At that point it was a flat and empty piece of ground and with visible signs of construction having begun.
Now there is a beautiful memorial and new buildings are being created in its place. The museum was not open at the time of my visit but I do hope to be able to see it in the future.
More information on the memorial and museum can be found here.
