It’s a powerful place to visit. Having grown up in New York and now living under western skies, I don’t often get back to NYC. This particular trip lead to a ride up to the 86th and 102nd floors of the Empire State Building (they have a very cool sustainability exhibit on display), as well as a subway ride down to The World Trade Center and Ground Zero.
I took the trip by myself, friends having been too pooped to make it out of the apt that day, and I’m kinda glad I did. Gave me time to sit and reflect, to soak in the scene and wander, to really pay homage to this place. I stopped by the 9-11 Memorial for Firefighters, Policeman and Rescue Workers and the WTC. If you have the opportunity, you should make the trip.
