Ladies Trip Day 3/4 The Final Post

Day 3 was the big day.
First, we attended a wonderful Easter worship
service right in the heart of Manhatten.  It was
absolutely fantastic!
Then, it was on to Carnegie Hall for Emily's performance.

Unfortunately, they don't allow photography or
videotaping in the hall so we'll have to wait for the 
hall photos for a couple of weeks.
With her accompanist

Hall Schedule for April 5th

We were able to get a couple of photos outside even though the girls were absolutely freezing.  It was in the low 50s and very windy.

After the performance we went back to the hotel to change and then on to our next stop…The World Trade Center Memorial.  This was  not within walking distance, so we hailed a cab and off we went.

The Trade Center Memorial was a very sobering place.

The girls and I got to see one of the fountains on…
I guess they had turned off the other due to wind.
(Emily had "quality time" with her flute wherever we went.)

This is the church which remained standing amidst the
rubble where members ministered to the relief workers.

One World Trade Center and a cool reflection picture.

After the memorial, we walked over by the Hudson and
looked out onto the harbor.

This was as close as we got to the Statue of Liberty.
There wasn't time to catch the last ferry.

The girls were glad for their warm coats :)

After a cab ride back to the hotel, we had an early birthday celebration for Emily with Nonnie and Papa.
Day 4 
We woke with taxis honking outside the hotel at
4:30 A.M.  Since we were all awake, we decided 
to get an early start...

This was our last sight of New York.
It was a great trip and even better to get out before
rush hour started.
