I’m thinking you could start at Battery Park downtown. VERY early the long lines for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty form. Take the ferry over and on your return . There is a free  mini bus run by the Downtown Alliance that makes a continuous loop from Battery Park to the WTC site and South Street Seaport.  Runs about every 15 minutes

On 31st St, between 7th and 6th Avenue, there is a church, St. Francis of Assisi.  Father Judge (he was the FD chaplain who perished that day – I am sure all of you have seen the photograph of him being carried away) was from that church.  He went down to WTC that day with his brothers from the firehouse right across the street.  Inside there is a piece of the WTC steel and a beautiful stained glass window (I believe a nun made it?) all in memory of that day.
