NYC day 3

Not many people like to start their day off remember the 9/11 attacks, but we decided to. We took the subway down to the 9/11 memorial and it was one of the more moving memorials. I am not one to get emotional, and I really didn’t but, when we walked through the room with all the pictures of the men and women who lost their lives, I had to keep it together. In that room there was a video playing going through all the victims and what their friends or family remembered them as, and I think that was the toughest part for me. If anyone ever wants to go, I would definitely recommend it.

After the memorial we went and caught lunch at a local bar/restaurant called the Trinity Vault. It had really good food, and was very decorated for the Holidays, and that put me in the Christmas spirit! After we headed for the New York Stock Exchange.

This was more of what my mom wanted to see, versus me obviously. You can’t go inside due to security reasons but they had this huge tree outside to look at. We didn’t spend too much time over there before we found a Tiffany & Co. shop. We went in a look around at the amazing jewelry they have, and we were given a free chocolate bar, so that was really awesome.

We decided to head back uptown because, we had wanted to run to the M&M world and get some things from there. After we were all jammed into the subway because, it was roughly 4PM we learned you don’t wait till 4PM to head back. Now we have started heading back around 3PM to avoid the craziness of the subway. Anyways, to get on the subway to take us to Time’s square we had to stop at Grand Central Station, which I obviously was excited about and posted a Gossip Girl quote with a picture from there on my Instagram. It’s a busy place, but I expected it to be a lot busier than it was. We didn’t eat anywhere special so I guess I’ll see ya tomorrow!
