Friday Summer took off work to show us around the city. It was so nice having her with us that day! We started out at Dean & Deluca. I’ve always wanted to go there. I used to watch Felicity on TV and I remember her working there in NYC and the food always looked delicious!
Look at all those fresh veggies
And the chocolate oh my!
We also saw ground zero. It’s a big construction zone right now. I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years since 9-11. It’s crazy how much progress they’ve made and how different everything looks now. In the museum they had pictures of all the debris after the towers fell and it was a complete disaster! It was nice to see something positive going up in a place where such devastation had taken place.
Gone but never forgotten.

The above is a model of what the memorial will look like when finished. The two pools are where the towers stood. Everyone who died on 9-11 will have their names engraved on the site.

We also had a carriage ride around Central Park. We got in the purple carriage….GO TCU!!!
