Had never heard of this but was included on a guided tour in NY. This was one of the most beautiful and respectful memorials I have seen. PLEASE do NOT miss this!
Thank you AE for honoring your employees with grace respect and dignity.
I will never forget…..

What a tribute to the 11 American Express employees that lost their lives on 9/11. A beautiful work of art.

Two things at the top of my NYC visit to do list: visit the American Express 11 Tears Memorial and the 911 Memorial. We did the museum first and then went to the Eleven Tears Memorial. It was a perfect way to let the impact of the museum soak in and heal with the elements around the 11 Tears. The crystal is stunning as is the black granite pool."Tears" fall from the ceiling in a random pattern. They ripple across the names of the American Express employees who were killed. Each name has descriptive comments from loved ones. It did not disappoint. Thank you American Express, Ken Smith and Lawrence Stoller.

We would never have known this was here if it wasn't for Randy, the tour guide for Wall St Walking Tours. What a beautiful memorial for the employees of American Express who died in the world trade center attacks. The pool has the names of the 11 individuals around it with personal words from family / friends to describe each person. Each section has a drip water dripping into the pool, creating a ripple effect, just like a tear drop. It is centered with a huge clear quartz crystal, just beautiful. It is set in a very quiet part of the mall and according to Randy, not many people know it is there, which is a shame. It was lovely to read the messages and pay our respects.

It's an impressing memorial site. I researched places to visit in New York, came across with a little video about this memorial. After visiting 9/11 memorial site, tried to find our bearings to the American Express memorial, asked for direction, nobody was able to tell us. We were going towards the exit, when an older gentlemen - a survivor of 9/11 knew about this fountains and gave us the directions. I'm really glad we found it. It's a beautiful tribute to the victims.

Very small memorial for 11 employees of American express in 9/11.
If you are in that building, it worth walking back there and see it, otherwise it is not a real tourist attraction to explore and visit.

American Express have created a beautiful tribute in their offices to their 11 employees lost on 9\11. Each victim is remembered personally. Tear drops fall from the ceiling into the pool of water below.

The office is very close to the Freedom Tower.

This memorial is truly breathtaking. I just wish there was more signage so people knew about it. I only discovered it on a tour. The thought and design that has gone into this, will take your breath away.

I am so glad that i saw it and will definitely go back when i visit again in December.

I only discovered today that there was an entry for this extremely touching memorial on tripadvisor. I actually visited it a few years ago and hope that tripadvisor will allow me to leave this review of this memorial to the 11 American Express employees who died in the World Trade Centre on 9/11. It is most certainly worthy of a visit where one can take a few quiet moments away from the general outside Manhattan hustle and bustle to reflect on all those people affected by the terrible loss of life on 9/11. I hope that the attached photos will encourage other people, both visitors and residents of New York, to visit the memorial and pay their respects to those who died on that dreadful day.

Its pitty that ther's no shield to this beatiful memorial. The teardrop, given by the Russian people, for the 9/11 attack. The place is nice, but its difficult to find.
Its your visit worth!
