Not far from Ground Zero and away from the busyness of this area is the FDNY Memorial Wall. I would say it is as important to visit this memorial as the other much grander memorial as this one is a tribute to the fire fighters who risked their lives going into the World Trade Center to rescue people.

Sadly some lost their lives but it is good that there is a tribute to them so that they will be remembered in years to come.

The Memorial Wall is close to the new World Trade Center and with the help of google maps I was able to find it. It is tucked away so please hunt it down as it is important.

Do not miss this memorial wall. When you visit the 9/11 memorial you are really visiting a several block area. While the two felled towers were the focal point, the surrounding area was severely impacted. This itty bitty firehouse (Ladder and Engine #10) would have been the first to respond by walking across the street. The exterior wall of this firehouse has a memorial wall that will move you.

After you finish this visit, walk up the hill to St. Paul's Chapel. How these buildings survived the falling towers is unimaginable.

To the fireman that work here now and those that lost their lives that day, thank you. My dad was a life long fireman in Iowa. I solute what you do!

In Depth Experience of 9-11; well worth visiting if passing through NYC.

Well depicted events with great audio tours and history presentations/viewings.

Can easily spend 2 to 3 hours in the 9-11 Museum.

This was a stop on our tour with Liz. It is located on the side of the firehouse that lost all of their crew that day of 9/11. The firehouse destroyed and had to be rebuilt also. It is a great commemorative wall for all 343 firefighters that made the ultimate sacrifice that day.

The memorial is an incredible tribute to the 911 attack. It has captured the soul and essence of all that perished on that such tragic day.
A lot of planning and design went in to preserve this beautiful sight. There are many kiosks around with individuals that have explanation to any questions you may have

Located across Greenwich Street from Liberty Park to the south of the 9/11 Memorial Garden, is the fire-station for Engine 10 and Ladder 10, with its 56-foot long bronze Memorial Frieze, depicting the Twin Towers in flames with firefighters executing their duties. It is dedicated to all the firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11. Engine 10 and Ladder 10 companies were among the first to respond to the attack and, by the end of the day, they had lost 10 men. The fire-station was so badly damaged that it had to be rebuilt. Worth a quick detour if you are in the vicinity of the WTC.

This memorial is not far from Ground Zero but is missed by many because it is a little out of the way. But it is definitely worth seeking out.'The brass plaques tell the story of the brave first responders who died on 9/11.These reliefs are beautiful, tasteful and will bring you nearly to tears. As we were concluding our short visit, a ladder truck fro NYFD came by. I got chills.

The memorial wall isn't far from the 9/11 museum. It's worth visiting and looking at the images engraved in the wall. I'm glad that a memorial was dedicated for those firefighters that gave their lives. Definitely go and remember that day.

Set off to the side of the main plaza, this beautiful bronze memorial is a fitting tribute to those firefighters who sadly lost their lives on that very unfortunate day. Spend time just looking at it and remembering those who were just doing their job to help save others.

Just a short walk from the 9/11 Memorial plaza and toward O'Hara's Restaurant and Pub, you'll find the FDNY Memorial Wall. This is a wonderful and beautiful tribute to the 343 members of the NYC Fire Department lost on 9/11/01. It makes you stop and think of their bravery and their selfless sacrifice that they gave on that terrible, fateful day. People visiting this memorial on the day we visited were respectful and quiet in reflection.
