  • My experience at The NY Vietnam Veterans Memorial was a solemn yet wonderful find. I ventured downtown and ended up here, didn't know this memorial existed. I stopped by en route to work and seized the moment to take in, respect and honor those who so valiantly fought and served this country. There are various structures that identify the veterans, there's background history and much more... vistas of the Hudson, parallel views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, The portal to The Staten Island Ferry, etc. Definitely reccomend.
  • Beautiful memorial, you definitely would tear reading the little pieces of the letters from veterans to their families! 😢
