A quick trip to New York City

Reflection of sky One World Trade Center 8325_StaatsWe’ve just returned from a quick weekend trip to New York City, my first time in the Big Apple.  So much to see and do, as well as to revel in the atmosphere and festivities of the Christmas holidays.  Thanks to the experience and knowledge of our family guide, we covered much ground and got a true taste of the different boroughs and much of what makes the city so unique.  The architecture of the city amazed me with its blend of new and old, so often within the very same block.  Our trip included a stop at the 9/11 Memorial – a reflective and moving tribute to those that died at the site.  The new One World Trade Center Building rises above in a fitting tribute, and on this late afternoon, it soared into the sky reflecting the blue and the surrounding clouds.
