AOL Travel Editor’s Review

It may look like a 16-acre construction site today, but there are few spots in New York City as emotionally and politically and patriotically loaded as this spot in lower Manhattan. A memorial is planned at the site, but for now there are a few references to the September 11, 2001 attacks that brought down the buildings. One of the most powerful is inside the St. Paul’s Chapel. The diminutive church from 1766 across the street from Ground Zero houses photos, fliers, and mementos related to the attacks. When all the construction is finished, a new tower will rise to 1,776 feet and there’ll be a Santiago Calatrava-designed subway station and several memorials.
