I went to visit the Jewish Heritage Museum today, which is a memorial of the Jewish Holocaust and Anti-semitism on the suggestion of a friend. The experience, was humbling, terrifying and raised so many questions about the extent to which humanity can be lost.
I also visited the Irish Hunger Memorial – reminiscent of the Great Irish Famine. I almost missed it as I passed what like a half-acre park in the middle of the street- that turned out to be the memorial. Though I found nothing spectacular about the architecture, the inside walls were all lined with quotes about the famine – they were something to read about!
I also ended up spotting the Statue of Liberty as I was gazing at the river near the World Financial Center.
And caught this amazing view while chatting with a fisherman trying to catch some for himself.
