one recommendation, try walking (west) towards 1 wtc from the wtc metro stop. you'll get to walk directly next to it. best perspective imho

Ooh, I'd love to see good close-up pictures of any memorial trees that appear to be dead or dying, plus some of the healthy ones for comparison. There are at least a couple on the north side of the north pool. Also, it would be great to have photos showing (from different angles) the undersides of the panels surrounding the pools. It would help us understand why they appear warped in this pic:

Still not sure if I should visit the site in September. Partially because of my 3 year old who will be with me and also because I don't know whether I belong there. I have no relatives who lost heir lives there. Gives me the feeling of just going because everyone does.

I think you would find that there are lots of people from all over the world who visit, and certainly lots of families and kids. If you want to go, you would not be out of place.

It's a part of history now. I went to the Vietnam memorial when I was in D.C., but I was born after the war ended.
