Please exclude the 9/11 Memorial from your Pokemon Go game. People are arriving at the memorial with the sole intention of collcecting "pokeballs" from the four "pokestops" that are at the memorial.

This location is sacred sacred place that stands to remind us of all we lost in the 9/11 attacks and all that we continue to fight for today. Do not disrespect America. Make this location off-limits to Pokemon gamers.

Signed,

A Better America

"A lot of people died here. It's a place to reflect, not to play a game"

Pokémon Go players have been flocking to the 9/11 Memorial in New York City, angering some visitors who say the sacred place that honors those who perished in the terrorist attacks should be off-limits to gamers. There are at least four Pokéstops at the landmark — including the twin memorial pools that feature the names of every person who died in the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. The stops, real-world locations marked on the game's map, give players prize items like Pokéballs, which many say is inappropriate.
