I have had a truly amazing day today in New York. Possibly the best day of my holiday. The weather has been brilliant and I experienced a huge range of emotions. I want to write about each in detail. But for now, here's my "60 second summary" (Anna will get that reference).
I got up early to go to the Empire State Building observation tower. Amazing doesn't even begin to describe New York from up there.
In the afternoon I took the subway to visit the 9/11 Memorial. I'm glad I wear glasses most of the time these days because they helped cover up the tears that kept seeping out each time I glanced at the names inscribed around the two waterfalls.
Then I made my way to Battery Park and back to the hotel along the Hudson River. Just gorgeous.
I'll write more about the first two, with pictures, tomorrow.
I'm going to get ready to go out for a little while tonight. There's an "avant garde" performance happening in the lobby of a hotel as part of a music festival that I want to catch.
