A memorial to those who suffered in the September 11 attacks and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, Ground Zero remains a powerful and poignant part of many traveller’s visit to New York. The largest man-made waterfalls in North America, today two reflecting pools sit in the footprints of the former Twin Towers with the names of those who died inscribed in bronze panels around the pool. Honouring the nearly 3000 people who lost their lives to terrorism, Ground Zero’s tours and the nearby museums lend political and personal insight, with sombre stories retelling the fateful events of September 11, 2001. It may not be the most cheering of tourist activities, but experiencing Ground Zero is a must-do when in New York.
