GUEST: Hello. I want a young girl to take me on tour.
CONCIERGE: You’d like to book a tour guide?
GUEST: No, no. Just a young girl to be with me while I go around the city.
CONCIERGE: Just someone to, um, escort you, so to speak?
The 9/11 Memorial is the site of a massive international tragedy.
It is not a tourist attraction.
It should not be third on your list of things to do in New York.
It is not a normal thing to want to see.
Having the desire to buy a 9/11 Memorial t-shirt is a sign of poor character.
If you have…
I agree with this MOSTLY. I did take a trip to Dachau to see the camp and the museum there when I was visiting nearby in Munich, because I do think it’s important to see just how awful things were and the museum actually had information you about the Holocaust. I don’t know if the 9/11 museum has things like this, but I do think most people are going for the spectacle, not to pay their respects or learn something. I don’t blame anyone for wanting to see the new buildings being built there, but it is totally creepy that it’s seen as a tourist attraction and that souvenirs for it are sold. Disgusting.
