NYC Day 3 The American experience

We have been on the streets and waters of Manhatten and Brooklyn since 7:30 am till 9pm. Spent three hours at the 9/11 Museam which brought it all back and reminded me of the need to create the history for our younger generation like Shannon who was 2 when it occurred.

Big bucket list to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Great visual and learning experience with the portable audio devices. In both cases I was reminded that history is messy. Was shocked to find out that women were not allowed at the dedication ceremony for the Lady Liberty, the suffragets boated around the island in protest.

Saw Brians apt in Brooklyn and ate dinner there and road the subway home wthout incident, a wonderful day with sunny skys and great memories.
