I’m staying in the South Street Seaport area, in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge. I can see one of the towers from my window. I’m a block from the East River and a few blocks from Wall Street and Ground Zero. This morning I grabbed some time before rehearsal to take some photos for you:
This cross is made from beams found in the ruins of the World Trade Center. This is its temporary home – it will be installed in the Memorial Museum when it is finished.
This church, St. Paul’s Chapel, sits directly across from what was the World Trade Center. It is the oldest colonial church still standing in Manhattan. George Washington worshiped there and it provided continuous care to all the workers at the Ground Zero Site.
Tomorrow is my day off and I plan to visit a few of my favorite places – and I will have my camera in hand. Hope you had a great weekend.
