Down the island I went to meet friends for lunch at a favorite place: Veselka.
Then it’s Uber time to the tip of the island.
The 9/11 Museum … I didn’t know what to expect. I was pleased with what I found. A lot of thought went into the design.
A bit of the iron structure into which one of the airplanes slammed.
The quote from Virgil is: Nulla dies umquam memori vos eximet aevo. I am not sure that the people who chose that did a lot of research.
A relic of the attack.
On a less solemn note, after the visit to the museum and memorial, we went uptown and parked ourselves in a “bar” on Bryant Park (yes, Romeo and Juliet were playing again and, yes, Mercutio was still screechy).
Which drink is mine? And what is it? Keep in mind that it was 90+F° and really humid.
It was a long, good, but, in the main, solemn day.
