A New York Sunday

Monday, August 8, 2016


You could live in New York for fifty years and still not see everything. That's the beauty of this dynamic city. One World Trade Center has been on my family's to-do list since its opening, so for their 24th wedding anniversary my parents decided to finally make the trip. 

At a time when waves of tragic events start desensitizing us, a visit like this is almost necessary to bring us back to reality. Beyond spectacular observatory views, what used to be the WTC Plaza offers an emotional reminder of 9/11's continued significance. Follow along for a visual recap of our day spent exploring, remembering, and celebrating.

  2. I would have loved to visit the One World Trade Center when I last visited New York, but sadly I didn't have enough time. On my list for the next trip though! That little restaurant looks so quaint. I totally agree you could live in New York and never visit all the places there are to see. It's so magical and I can't wait to go back one day!
