Take the A train

The blogger app is so user non friendly. All my posts will need editing once I get back to my real computer instead of the iPhone. Anyway, yesterday we played tourists. A beautiful day to do it. We took the train into the city.  First stop the 911 museum at ground zero.  Did I know anyone killed? Not on 9/11 but a man whose job I got when he was promoted was blown out of the sky over Lockerbie. Larrry  was such a. Good man. Athey had photos of all 3000+ victims. Using a touch screen, you could hear each story. They had various pieces of the Twin Towers, twisted steel girders and an intact window

The High Line linear park is on a 2 mile long platform. We walked more than 2 miles from Ground Zero to get to it, walked on it and then another mile to the train. Lots of walking
bizarre sculpture

strange art on our way to the High Line

A sculpture representing the fallen bodies though I assume all of the real bodies were clothed

beautiful waterfall outside the 9/11 museum on the granite edges are the names of each of the 3000+ victims

The highest station of all the lines Recently redone

My brother and sister-in law live near the F train. Alas work is being done on the line so service was real spotty. We had to transfer to the A train to get to where the World Trade center towers once stood.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could put up memorials to positive moments and events?
