Today we visited Central Park, Ground Zero, the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge. When we visited Ground Zero now being referred to as One WTC I was struck by how life goes on despite incredible setbacks. We visited a 911 memorial site and the plans for what they will build are simply beautiful. You can read about the redevelopment plans and progress
We then walked around the tip of the island to a Pier where we took a ferry trip to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. By this point I was happy to sit down and the cool breezes coming off the water were heavenly. I think at the end of the day we must have walked for six hours.
