I took a business trip to New York this past week and then had a nasty cold, so I didn’t post much. I’m pretty unfamiliar with New York, and unwittingly booked a hotel right next to the World Trade Center site (the Marriott Financial Center).
One day I was there I used GMaps to try and find the WTC site and erroneously thought I should go about 7 blocks south. I didn’t find it, went to a dinner I had scheduled at Nobu (in the area) and the next morning tried again by asking the doorman at the hotel. When I asked he gave me a look like I was a serious idiot and now I know why. I was right next to it the entire time.
If you find yourself in the area please go by and visit FDNY Station House #10. These guys were involved in the recovery operation and lost men in the effort. They have a memorial up and it is worth a visit.
