|National September 11th Memorial
We couldn’t visit New York without spending some time at Ground Zero to show our respect to all those who lost their lives in that devastating event on September 11, 2001. The National September 11th Memorial was built on the land that the twin towers once stood. The two granite pools, one for each tower cover 2 acres with a 30’ waterfall. The infinity pool is surrounded by a bronze panel border inscribed with names of every person who died on that fateful September day. It is a sad but tranquil place to visit.
New York City, known by many names such as “the Big Apple”, “the City that never sleeps” and “the Capital of the World” due to the size, wealth and being the location of the United Nations Headquarters, is the largest city in the U.S. by population with over 8.4 million people. It is a spectacular city and one that offered us a wonderful visit and was a very special place to celebrate our 50th anniversary.
