New York City vacation part 2

We started out our second day in NYC heading down to Ground Zero and the 9-11 memorial. Very moving
Then we headed over to Statue of Liberty, not quite finished with its renovation and closed to the public, except the land around it and Ellis Island, which had a great museum of its time as an immigration center. Fraunces Tavern Museum is the oldest tavern in New York and has a museum upstairs dedicated to the Revolutionary War. George Washington bade farewell to his Continental Army there. That night we went to see “Grace”, a black comedy starring Paul Rudd, Michael Shannon, Kate Arrington and Ed Asner. A young couple moves to Florida to open a faith based hotel, but runs into problems. Very good. After the play we went to Joe Allen for dinner, fabulous!
