  • The space where the Sphere is located is relatively peaceful and clean. Not far from the WTC Memorial pool, but it's not easily visible to the visitors as the location is on an elevated space.
  • Beautifully designed bronze sculpture by Fritz König. This place made me feel in a way that I do not feel very often. It was the first time I got personally affected by the tragedy. My feelings towards the whole situation and the nightmare that happened here changed a lot after our visit. Nothing in New York touched my heart like this place did. I would totally recommend visiting this place to everyone!
