The room is very comfortable...quiet and cool. We sleep like the dead. Our knees are better when we get up, but it probably isn't going to last since we have a busy day planned. We head to breakfast about 9AM. The hotel has a very small dining room with some self service items and cooked to order eggs or pancakes. It is good though not the best we have had.
The day is cool and mostly sunny. Our first stop is the WTC Memorial and 9/11 Museum located at the World Trade Center site under the footprint in lower Manhattan. Carolyn made timed reservations yesterday so we wouldn't have to stand in line to get into the museum part. It is walkable from the hotel, but in deference to our knees we take a taxi. There is a lot of construction with roads blocked around the site and we do have to walk some after all. The taxi drops us off about a block away. We enter the site in front of the fountain on the building foot print. There are many people milling around, but it is surprisingly quiet even with all the construction. The memorial is a very impressive design.
