Nico, the Horse Powers crew, Jon and Eva Learn after arriving JFK airport late Thursday night and staying at hotel in Union Square, Manhattan, we had sausage and egg sandwiches, milk & coffee at a coffee shop on 3rd Avenue for breakfast Friday. Then we walked all the way down past Canal Street and Soho stopping in several shops along the way. We got a big yellow taxi the rest of the way to Battery Park where we caught the ferry to Liberty Island and the Statue of Liberty. Before the boat we took a pic of Freedom Tower. After a giant cheeseburger at the Statue I visited the 911 Memorial museum. This was emotional for me as I took my decision to be a combat soldier instead of a fireman after I saw those twin towers fall. I thought I could do the most good for free-world as soldier, like my forefathers.
Overall for me, NYC was some experience but the crowds and noise wore heavy on my PTSD at times.
