Freedom Tower and September 11 Museum

I’m posting my Wordless Wednesday post late because my mom and brother are visiting from Germany. Our days are filled spending time with them, showing them around, and yummy meals.

Today, on Veteran’s Day, we all drove to New York City. We walked the High Line and then went to the Freedom Tower and September 11 Memorial and Museum.

Thanks for sharing this collection of photos. We were in New York in 2013, but the Freedom Tower wasn’t quite finished yet. Wonderful and emotional set of photos. Thanks for sharing them.

Amazing! Thanks for sharing. I hope to someday visit Freedom Tower. What a beautiful way to memorialize those lost. It’s been over 20 years since I’ve visited NYC, so a visit is overdue.

I would love to see it! I saw the site when I was there about 4 years ago. I still remember watching the events as they happened. So tragic. This is a great memorial to those who lost their lives.
