One World Bus Trip to New York City
Thursday, September 2, we are going to New York to see One World, The 9/11 Museum and spend Free time at Chelsea Market. This Memorial documents the impact of those events and explores its continuing significance. You will see artifacts associated with the events and hear stories of loss and recovery. The twin reflecting pools are nearly an acre in size and features the largest manmade waterfalls in North America and sit within the footprints of where the Twin Towers once stood. The names of every person who died in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are inscribed on bronze panels around the pools.
Spend time in Chelsea Market for lunch on your own. The market is the original National Biscuit Company complex. Today it is home to many restaurants and food stores.
Bus leaves the senior center at 6:30am with an estimated time of return of 9:00pm. Trip includes Round-Trip Motor Coach, Gratuities for Tour Director and Driver, Admission to 9/11 Memorial, Free-Time at Chelsea Market, and Admission to World Trade Center. Cost $124.
