New York adventures- Statten Island 9-11 Memorial

Jason and I went to New York from April 22-26. We took around 2,000 photos. Yeah, that’s a lot. In order for me to tell the New York stories without completely losing my mind and being tonally overwhelmed, I’m going to break them up into small, bite-sized chunks. It might take a week, it might take a month. Probably closer to the latter. But I’m fine with that. You can see more of our New York adventures here.

We came upon Staten Island’s 9/11 Memorial unexpectedly on our way to the ferry. We knew we wouldn’t be able to make it to the one in NYC, so I’m glad we got to see this one. I spent a few quiet minutes reading names. It was a rare bit of calm in a very hectic day.

It was really windy and too cold for these thin blooded Floridians!

Jason ran around taking pictures like a crazy person. The view of the city from this spot is amazing.

You can barely see the Statue of Liberty on the left. (More of her in the next post!)

The tall building is the new Freedom Tower. As of May 10th, with the addition of the spire, it became the tallest building in the U.S.

I’ll share a layout I made with this pic later today.
