Our first stop Thursday morning was one of the best kept secrets

in Manhattan.

Teardrop Park in Battery Park City.

And it has killer bathrooms. While we were there a taxi pulled up the driver

jumped out and ran in the bathroom and then back out and drove off.

Children's play area

Ice Wall

Boggy Marsh area with fun path through it.

Irish Hunger Memorial for the second time this trip.

I never seem to get tired of it.

Good Friends

Trinity Church graveyard. The first time I visited Trinity

I wondered how they held onto this prime piece of property

facing Wall Street. I pictured them fighting off the "Big Guys"

to stay on their little spot. Sure. Then I discovered that the

Episcopal Church is the largest landowner on the island of Manhattan.

I stopped feeling sorry for them.

We walked back around the corner to the 9/11 Museum which

has been open 3 years but we hadn't run on to it before.

It is very well done and we appreciated the box's of kleenex that

were handy. I would recommended it even at $10.00 a pop.

The memorial is starting to rise out of the hole.

Most were so young.

We next caught a cab to Seaport where we had lunch

and T. bought a ticket for Mary Stuart for tonight.

T. headed back to the apartment and the rest of us

launched in the direction of the Brooklyn Bridge. O.K.

we only went to the first arch but it's good views and we

had a lot of area to cover.

The horrid trek through Chinatown but you have to do

it to get to the Lower East Side which is one of my favorite


Eldridge Street Synagogue again for a tour and then to

Lower East Side Museum for a tour of the Moore's apartment.

I decided it is my least favorite apartment. I'll do a different

one next year.

Jersey Boys tonight and Mary Stuart for T. Met up later for the ride home.
Such a good evening.

Heavy traffic day---20,726 steps
