New York City: Welcome To Downtown

We spent some time downtown on our New York City trip, including a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.

The weather was perfect, barely 80 degrees and low humidity; a relief from the 100+ temps we were having in KC.

This cast iron building right over the bridge in Brooklyn was built in 1869.

And also downtown and right across the street from Ground Zero is St. Paul's where George Washington often attended church while New York was still the capital.

Most of these headstones dated back to the early 19th century. St. Paul's served as a safe haven between shifts for 9/11 rescue workers and the interior is dedicated to them and all who perished in the tragedy.

It was a great day for a ride on the Staten Island Ferry.

I loved this old timey looking sail boat.

And it's always fun to visit Lady Liberty.
