Day 2: Today's Blog entry by Sarah Di Donato and Kaitlyn Eastman
Next stop we headed off to the 9/11 memorial. Where we saw the breath-taking views of the remembrance and honor of the almost 3,000 people who were sadly killed on September 11, 2001. The memorial consists of two pools, an acre each, that feature the largest man made waterfalls in North America. All the names of the victims from the tragedy are etched onto bronze panels along the edge of the memorial ponds.
We then visited the St. Paul’s Chapel. St. Paul’s Chapel survived the 9/11 without even a broken window!
After exploring the Trinity Church grounds, we ventured inside to find beautiful architecture and the amazing sounds of the St. Petersburg Quartet.
We then ventured off to National Museum Of the American Indian. This beautiful museum has a collection of more than 3 million artifacts displayed in exhibits within the archives that focus on American history and culture.
The Doors Unhinged! John Densmore the drummer for the band. He has been a filmmaker, stage performer, dancer, and an author. We had the privilege of visiting him at the New York Public Library of the performing arts at Lincoln Center, where we got the opportunity to hear some readings from his new book “The Doors Unhinged”.
We leave you today with another image of the 9/11 memorial site in a Panoramic View.
