In October, Travel + Leisure magazine asked its readers to vote for their favorite new landmarks, and the National September 11 Memorial was honored with a nomination as the best new park or public space. Read more about it here.
The January issue of the magazine, which hits newsstands this week, announced the results of the survey. The memorial took the No. 1 spot in its category, followed by Millennium Park in Chicago and Sands SkyPark at Marina Bay in Singapore.
The memorial was also named the No. 18 most-visited landmark in the world, with the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building rounding out the No.1 and No. 2 spots, respectively.
