Flashback: A Full Day in New York City


I got up with Trina, took her to her interview, and rode back. This gave my parents an extra couple hours of sleep, which they would need. I came back, picked them up, we ate, and then headed into Brooklyn via subway. We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge for some stunning views of lower Manhattan.



Then we worked our way over to the World Trade Center site. There is a church there, that George Washington attended, that was used as a the primary triage/volunteer coordination center for the rescue efforts. You may remember its heavily decorated fence, the “have you seen my daughter?” pictures, etc.

They still have a very powerful memorial to those who lost their lives, and the rescuers (and the rescuers who also lots their lives) going in this church. It was a moving introduction to the site itself.





We viewed the sight, and the names of the victims, and then got a little turned around trying to get back around it. We made our way to Wall Street, where there was a faux fight taking place between a bull and a bear. There was also a girl carrying around a Round 2, sign, clad only in a bikini on this chilly October afternoon. We took a picture of the stock exchange, and then headed up to Times Square. We stopped in at Grand Central and the New York public library, gawking at the massive marble architecture. We saw NBC studios, Rockefeller Center, St Patrick’s Cathedral, and Sacks Fifth Avenue.


We also saw NYU, another potential law school for me (NYU is in Greenwhich Village (pronounced Grenich Village). It was a full day.
