While in New York we also visited the Intrepid Museum. I’m not going to lie – at $31 a person in order to see the space shuttle as well, it was an awfully expensive a ticket for what you saw. There was really cool stuff, but while I get that we couldn’t go *on* the shuttle, they could have had some doors open so we could look in it at least. However, we had a good time and I am glad we went.

Scene in New York
Last week my husband and I were in New York City. It was the first time I’d been there since the attacks in 2001. We made time to visit the 9/11 Memorial, although we were not able to visit the museum. It’s an incredibly moving memorial – a massive fountain/waterfall for each tower, and around the edge are engraved the names of those who perished – though out of respect for their families I am not going to include names in the photos here. The water flows endlessly down and you cannot see the bottom. The new 1 World Trade Center (“Freedom Tower”) is also quite a sight. The resilience of the city is most impressive.
