My favorite moment: watching us beat Uconn surrounded by lots of crazy SU fans
My least favorite moment: getting lost walking back to our hotel at 1am
My favorite thing I bought: fun earrings from a street vendor
The best thing I ate: Crumbs cupcakes
The most memorable moment: getting off the subway near the World Trade Center Site and hearing the eerie silence. There was a sense of reverence on the streets even 10 years later.
My favorite spot: Central Park, especially after two days of frantically trying to find our way through the mess of over-crowded, dirty downtown subways
The funniest moment: toss up between my mom and I getting cursed out by a slightly crazy, very smelly guy on the subway (we DID run into him), or laughing with disgust as the guy next to us on the train back to Westchester County (where our hotel was) who picked his nose nearly the entire 30 min ride.
I took lots of pictures (but somehow we managed to not get one of ourselves at any point…grrrrr). Here is a (poor man’s) taste of our trip.
One of the towers is half way done being rebuilt. This is also a picture of the tree that survived 9/11.
