The timing of our stay in Connecticut has allowed us to go and see the 9/11 Memorial a month after it opened to the public. I think they did a great job in creating a moving memorial for all the lives lost from terrorist attacks both in 2001 and 1993. The waterfalls are impressive in size and the detail of the rim with each name etched in was breathtaking. It left us both feeling somber and grateful for what we have in our lives. Here are some pictures.

After lunch our walk back to the subway took us past Zuccotti Park which is where the Wall St Occupiers have made a home. Another event that seems to be becoming more significant with every day they continue to protest. Here is a protester... I am not sure what he is protesting I don't know who Robby Steele is... but I like his boots!
