Even more NYC Christmas

After the memorial, the guys were drawn to a building with an amazing glass atrium. I wouldn’t have bothered with it, but my sister said, “Why not satisfy their curiosity and let them explore?”  Excellent advice!  It let us get out of the cold, see so me cool architecture and have lunch.

Another of the most interesting parts of this building was its location and its view of Liberty and Ellis Islands – an unexpected surprise!

If it had been up to me, we would have missed that little surprise!  This is when having a fun aunt really works in everyone’s favor.

Following lunch we headed to St. Paul’s Chapel, the location where first responders were able to find a place to rest and find solace in the days following 9/11.

What a great opportunity this church had to serve those who were serving the community. A true inspiration!

We were close to another famous church, so we decided to stop in there as well. Trinity Church is a beautiful architectural structure. The guys seemed most impressed by the part it played in National Treasure.

Don’t you LOVE this stained glass window!  Definitely one of the highlights of the trip for me.

There is even more to see, so I’ll have to add at least one more post.  Keep following!
