Today’s plan is to visit the 911 site, One World Observatory (our appointment time 11am,am), walk the Brooklyn Bridge then walk over to China Town. A lot to do but time is running short. Taking the subway again today we got off at Cortlandt St and walked from there to the site of the Twin Towers. We viewed the 2 reflection pools where the towers stood, North Pool and South Pool with the victims names engraved around the ledge of each pool. A rose is place by the persons name if their birthday is that day. Entering the Oculus we stood there in amazement of the architecture of this structure. It is a mall, transportation center and plaza. We shopped Pandora and we each got a NYC charm for our bracelets. We experienced trouble at the One World Observatory as the Vouchers that AAA gave us did not have a Bar code on them so we had to go to Guest Services. The lady at guest servers was very nice and tried her best to straighten the problem. Julie finally had to call AAA and after at least an hour, missing our appointed time of 11, the lady at guest services gave us priority tickets to enter the Observatory. Views from the 100th floor of the observatory was a fantastic view of the city. Stopped to view St Paul’s Chapel across the street from 911 which was used as a ground zero recovery station cleanup. Had lunch at Burger King on Liberty St before getting back on the subway to go back to the hotel. Back to the hotel to change clothes to go to the Gershwin Theatre for the broadway show “Wicked”. Stopped the way to grab a bite to eat at Juniors. Shelby came down to join us for this Broadway show.. I was a little disappointed in the Gershwin Theatre. Thought a Broadway Show Theatre would be more up scale, glitzy. Guess not, but “Wick” was really good!
