The lizard-green Lady of the Harbor is a sight to behold, but once you’ve circled the great statue there are tons of activities to take advantage of in lower Manhattan where the ferry drops you off. Make a day of your visit to Lady Liberty with Culture Trip’s guide on things to do, eat and drink around this New York City landmark.
It can be hard to fathom the events of September 11, 2001, and the fallout from what occurred, but the 9/11 Memorial & Museum dutifully honors those who perished and the first responders who arrived at the scene. Located on the site formerly occupied by the World Trade Center, the 110,000-square-foot museum offers a somber examination of the events of that tragic day told through artifacts, imagery, personal stories and interactive technology. Two reflecting pools, in what were originally the bases of the towers, buttress the museum and commemorate the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attacks. While visitors will have to purchase tickets to the museum itself, the memorial is free and open to the public.
