The site of the World Trade Center, 10 years after 9-11, is a work in progress.
St Paul’s Church miraculously did not suffer any damage on 9-11. It became a gathering point during the tragedy and still displays many remembrances. The bell in the church yard is a memorial gift from London.
St Paul’s has a very pretty sanctuary. There was a rehearsal for a Bach choral performance going on which added a special musical soundtrack to our visit.
The Winter Garden – World Finance Center offers the best views of the WTC site across the street.
Battery Park is located at the tip of Manhattan and stretches up the lower west side. It’s a lovely walk and offers views of the Statue of Liberty.
This wonderful statue is on the front of the Museum of the American Indian. The building started out as the U.S. Customs House.

Trinity Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1846 it is the third sanctuary built on this spot since 1696. There is also a lovely small church yard.
