After living in New Jersery for more than 50 years, it took me moving to Raleigh to find the time to go to all the places I wanted to go to in NYC. I was glad to do the trip solo so that I would not have to worry about anyone keeping the pace that I set for myself going from site to site. And boy was it a pace for the entire day! The energy, the sites, the smells (some good some not so good) were great to experience during that one day in midtown. Looking forward to my next trip in October 2018 while staying at the Marriot hotel on 34th Street for four nights.
After being away from the ‘city’ for over 14 years I made plans to pay my respects to those who lost their lives on 9/11. I was able to stay in NJ and then take NJ Transit to downtown NYC.
I will let the photo gallery do the rest of the narrative for me as words cannot express emotion for this event. And if time permits, take the trip yourself to visit NYC and pay your respects as well. Please remember it is a memorial and not a tourist attaction where you take ‘selfies’ and smile. It is a memorial not Disney World.
