Waterfront offers excellent views of lower Manhattan. Very safe. Very quiet at night and is a nice location to reflect on the awesomeness of the New York skyline and how it has changed since September 11, 2001.

The memorial is an open area in a public park. Though I don't believe there's a cut off for when you could visit, you would want to attend during the day or early evening, preferably before sunset.
