Your tour will begin at St. Paul’s Chapel on Broadway. This site is considered to be the oldest public building still in use. During the 9/11 attacks, the Chapel miraculously survived without even a single broken window and served as a sanctuary for refuge and shelter throughout the aftermath. Now, it stands as a place of tribute for those around the world to commemorate first responders and innocent civilians, containing mementos and paraphernalia of support for the city.
Next, you’ll walk to the Firefighter's 9/11 Memorial Wall located at FDNY Engine 10 and Ladder 10. There, you’ll see a memorial dedicated to the city’s 343 first emergency responders who risked their lives on the day of the attacks.
From the Firefighter's 9/11 Memorial Wall, you’ll head towards the 9/11 Memorial. There, you’ll have the the opportunity to see the new Freedom Tower and World Trade Center.
The final stop on the tour will include the One World Observatory or the Freedom Tower. This journey begins at the Welcome Center. You’ll hear stories of the people who built the tower through a video montage. Next, travel in the “Sky Pod” elevator which shows you a virtual time-lapse of the city as you ascend. The Observation Deck begins with the See Forever Theatre and descends to the 100th floor where the main observation deck is located. You’ll have a panoramic view of New York City’s incredible skyline.
