Stroll around the 911 Memorial Site and feel the overwhelming loss that people feel when all that’s left of their loved ones from the horrific 9/11 attack is a plaque such as this and lingering memories. Visit this site during the late afternoon and experience the diminishing light, which reinforces a sombre mood from any visitor.

Location: 911 Memorial Site, New York
