The 9/11 memorial, more formally known as The National September 11 Memorial, no longer requires passes in order to gain admittance. The memorial is completely open to the public, with no more lines or reservations needing to be made.
Workers removed the fences surrounding the memorial, and a notice was published to on the website of The National September 11 Memorial & Museum in order to alert the public to the changes. The lack of any kind of barrier means that visitors can enter the memorial site directly from either Liberty Street or Vesey Street, between which the eight acre memorial site stretches. More.
