The NYC Tour Continues

Messages pertaining to 9/11 hang on ribbons from this tree in the chapel yard.

This bronze bell at St. Paul's chapel was presented to the New York workers on the first anniversary of 9/11 by the Lord Mayor of the city of London.

This sign hangs in the inside of St. Paul's Chapel.

Track 7 at Grand Central Station

After we visited the 9/11 Memorial, we walked to St. Paul's Chapel. This small church holds a lot of history. George Washington worshipped here on the day of his inauguration, and not long ago it was a resting place for the rescue workers following the attacks on the Twin Towers. In the yard at the rear, there is a cemetery. It was difficult to read the inscriptions.

Our next destination was Grand Central Station. Our tour guide told us some years ago the city of New York considered tearing this down - after all, real estate in New York City is prime. But when Jackie Kennedy got wind of this, she campaigned to have it remain and to have the inside cleaned. It's a beautiful building. Jan, Pat and I ate our lunch in the basement of the station.

Next stop, the United Nations.
