This morning we went out on a sightseeing day again, well sightseeing not really the right word for the first place, but call it what you will. We went down to The World Trade Centre, Ground Zero, obviously a lot of people around, a big police presence and unfortunately you need to get an advance pass to actually see the site but there you go. Just being close to it was enough, the construction works are going on to rebuild, but its strange, before, of course you saw this thing and it was bad, you know its bad, it was big, it meant bad things, but not until being stood there could you really understand the enormity of it, we stood there, we look at these huge buildings, one in particular and we can really understand just how horrifying it must of been. You know, standing there, watching a plane fly into one of these things??? Unreal, it really was.
We took a tube back to the Greenwich Village area to find some things, so we took a walk along Perry Street, apparently where they shot Carrie's Apartment in Sex and the city, we're pretty sure we found it, though couldn't be one hundred percent sure, it was a very pretty road, apparently one of the "prettiest" in NY, it was though, the buildings being the main interest,
Had a walk up and down , here and there and made our way back
last stop of the day, back to SoHo and the Tribeca area for a walk around again,
