I found the seminar at 50 Broadway cancelled when I arrived at 9:45 this morning. At first I was pissed. It took me an hour and a half to get there only to find no one bothered to call to tell me about the date change. The secretaries were sweet and sorry I didn't get a call. They refunded my big $2 fee and gave me the opportunity to sit in any other class offered. I decided instead to enjoy the day in the city.
I began with a walk to a nearby school where I visited with an old friend, now an AP. T is not a typical AP. He still respects teachers and does not take advantage of the power of his job. He never makes anyone cry.
I then got to visit the 9-11 Memorial. They don't make it easy. Tickets have to be picked up on Vessey St, about 6 blocks away. The line is huge but moves fast. It was worth the walk and the wait.
The day was beautiful so I headed west and walked up the Hudson River. Before I knew it, I was on 14th St and hit the Highline again (third time this spring--I never get tired of it). I continued on to the end and then walked over to 34th and 6th to catch train home.
According to the App on my phone, I walked close to 6 miles. After two recent equivalent walks, I finally got it and wore comfortable shoes.
A few more pictures on Facebook. Others will be added in the next few days.
