    What to Expect
    This Ground Zero walking tour begins at St Paul's Chapel, aka the Little Chapel That Stood. St Paul’s is the oldest public building in New York City that’s still actively used. This church somehow survived the falling debris from the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center despite being only one block away from the melee. It became a kind of rescue center during the aftermath of the tragedy, and the iron fence that surrounds it became a place for family members to post notices about their missing loved ones.

    As the tour continues, walk to the FDNY Memorial Wall and FDNY Ten House. Hear the heroic stories about the emergency responders on that day and see the fire station at Ground Zero.

    Finally, enter the National September 11 Memorial, aka the 9/11 Memorial, a tribute of remembrance and honor to the almost 3,000 people who were killed on 9/11 — at the World Trade Center site, in the plane crash near Shanksville, Pa., and at the Pentagon — as well as the six people who were killed in the World Trade Center bombing in February 1993.

    There are twin reflecting pools at the very spots where the Twin Towers once stood. Look up and see One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower.

    There is an optional upgrade to include entry into the National September 11 Museum — 110,000 square feet of exhibit space located at the heart of the World Trade Center site. The museum tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of artifacts. The lives of every victim of the 2001 and 1993 attacks are commemorated here.

    Guide is not needed to walk the ground zero area, there are maps. Suggest to spend as much time as possible at the 9/11 Museum. I bought ticket at museum window with no wait time, guess could be busy on weekends. Go asap to the lower level Witnessing History exhibit that can

    the tour around Gropund Zero with Ray was excellent. the crowds in the memorial, especially in the museum, made the time in the museum not as enjoyable. We could not read or watch the displays and left this section early

    If you go to the Memorial it’s nice to hear some facts about the actual day that 9/11 happened. The short guided tour will give you some great background information leading up to and into the shocking terrorist attack. You will go to the grounds where towers one and two stood,
