Monday (Day 4)- Headed to the New 9/11 Memorial. We have been to Ground Zero on previous trips, which is always very surreal. The new Memorial has a waterfall and reflecting pool that is an acre in size and each is in the exact spot of the World Trade Towers that were destroyed in the 9/11 attacks. The names of the almost 3,000 that lost their lives are inscribed around the outside of the water fall. They say at night, the lights from beneath the Memorial, shine through the cuts in the metal that make up the letters of each name. The museum is not open yet and the site still has much construction around it.
We had lunch in Times Square which was fun and then went to Battery Park. It was our last night there, so we decided to have dinner at “The View” which is the 48th floor (top) of the Marriott Marquis. The restaurant turns 360 degrees giving you an unbelievable view of the city.
The next morning I got up early and headed down to Rockefeller Center for the Today show.
Headed home later in the afternoon.
Well, back to reality… Here are some pictures from the last leg of our trip – enjoy!
