We walked over to the Memorial. On the way we saw a movie being filmed but still don't know what it was. We didn't see anyone famous. The Memorial was beautiful. Highly recommend getting an online reservation or you have to stand in a long line to get tickets. There is a lot of construction still going on around the site. It was still moving to know what happened there. I don't think the kids could really grasp it. Understandable. It was heavy to me.
After our visit Paul really wanted to have John's pizza in the village where we ate 10 years ago. We found it. It was good. Cool hole in the wall place too. Appears quite a few famous people think so too by the pictures in the window.
The kids are getting a good taste of what it means to live in New York. Walk, eat, subway, eat, walk, subway, stay up late, weirdos, etc. I will tell you that Boston is a pretty cool city and much cleaner and safer.
We treked from there through Times Square (like Vegas with a poonsy smell) and on to Rockefeller center (all they cared about was the Lego store there). Earlier we took them through FAO Schwartz to the Lego section. We stopped at an Italian restaurant for a late night dinner and now they are sleeping and I can hardly stay awake. This is the city that doesn't sleep. Something we rather enjoy. Paul and I that is.
Tomorrow we say goodbye to NY and take the train back to CT and head for Philly via New Jersey. On the road again. Happy trails.
I will upload photos in the morning. zzzzz
