I’ve been procrastinating on this post (see here for how I roll – hint: I’m NOT a non-procrastinator, clearly). The problem is partly* because, after one week, I thought it was a good idea to start thinking about what I learned in New York in themes and was trying to group my thoughts from NY together.
So rather than do that, I’ve pulled together some photos and video of a few of the different memorials I visited and have linked them with details I learned throughout the week. For anyone reading, I’m also posting similar info on Instagram & Twitter.
The video below is of the north pool of the 9/11 Memorial. The waterfalls of the memorial pool were designed to drown out the sounds of the city outside the memorial grounds.
FDNY Memorial Wall
The Giuliani Archives
These people putting all their faith in the postie.
9/11 Tribute Center
11 Tears Memorial
In the video below you can see the ripples in the pool caused by the water falling from the ceiling.
I also visited other memorials in New York from different types of events. Stay tuned for those soon!
*the other part is because this great wonderful Churchill adventure is completely without a Panic Monster. The Panic Monster won’t appear for another three months when the deadline for my report rolls around. Clearly I have heaps of time, queue Instant Gratification Monkey…wine anyone?
