Saturday April 12
Today we wake up in New York and go down to Breakfast which is free. A $32 buffet so make the most of it. It has everything from cereals, toast, bagels, muffins, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausages and an Asian section too. Looking out the front windows the streets are empty except for a few people.
We walk to Grayline who do the hop on, hop off bus tour and get on a bus to Downtown loop which travels through the city down to Battery Island ...

... don’t do it justice explaining it but it really represents the massive scale of what happened and the amount of loss that people felt. It is a huge chasm in the middle of NYC and a scar on the city. It shouldn’t be beautiful or “selfie-able” it should just be sad. We continued walking and made our way through Tribeca, Little Italy, Chinatown, Noho, Nolita and Soho. NYC is so big that no matter where we went it was busy. I am sure people were also ...
