Ground Zero - Review
Ground Zero New York is reminiscent of the tragedy of 9/11 that took place in the city of New York. ‘Ground Zero’ is a term that is used in case of a nuclear explosion or bombings. It is used to describe the point that is nearest to a detonation. So, the site where 9/11 Memorial and Museum are standing today, was known as the ‘Ground Zero, NYC’ in the past after the New York terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on 9th September 2011. The Ground Zero, New York address is same as the 9/11 Memorial and Museum - Liberty Street, 16th Floor, New York, NY 10006, United States, New York City.
Though 9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero are not the same things, people use both the names interchangeably while talking about this site. Even the museum here is known as ‘Ground Zero Museum’ by many. When travelers ask about the Ground Zero tours, it means they want to visit the National September 11th Memorial and Museum. There are various tours which take you to the site and you can choose to re-live the beauty of World Trade Centre before 9/11 through these. There are also tours which have guides that were directly affected by 9/11. When in New York, you should definitely visit to see the tragedy that terrorism causes and the helplessness that a place goes through after becoming a victim of such hatred.

Ground Zero, New York City Reviews
Gary, the place you have created for the world to see is unbelievable! I shed many tears while in your Musuem, it’s beautiful to see what you have done for the victims of 9/11. They will never be forgotten and your images will forever be in my mind. I am glad to say I meet you personally, your a humble kind hearted man that deserves every word in this review. I highly recommend anyone coming to the NYC to get down to this place and experience it! Your mind will be blown, a 5 star recommendation is not enough. Make sure you view this place before the memorial as well, it puts the memorial in much better perspective. Cheers, Louise from Sydney, Australia.
Absolutely beautiful! I would allow 3-4 hours to walk through the Museum. Easy 5+ hour Day just at WTC.
A wonderful little treasure of a museum. Very interesting and emotional. A great experience and a tribute to the wonderful people of New York. Never Forget
This place is small and tucked out of sight on the second floor of a multi-use building. But if you are on a trip to NYC with young kids, and have been marching thru gigantic museums you will appreciate this place. It is a small space filled with photos and artifacts of the 9/11 clean up and recovery effort. It is moving and informative, but spares us the horrors of the actual event. The audio tour is very interesting and easy for adults and kids alike.
Beautiful and wonderful experience, as a teenager I personally enjoyed the experience and came with my family. So touching and personal.
