The family and I decided to visit the Memorial, and booked the tour with Uncle Sams. We definitely got our money’s worth and more. Our guide, Michael J has a tremendous passion for city and its history, and we got to see inside the mind of real New Yorker.
Besides seeing the Memorial we heard about how the site came to be, from its very inception in the 1960s. What an eye opener !!! He even explained the topography, dating back to the 1600s all the way to the present. He showed us drawings from that time as well as aerial photos of the WTC before and after 9/11 and this gave us a whole new understanding of the World Trade Center. Seeing and hearing all of this and learning about the heroes of 9/11 made it a very special experience. Thank you Uncle Sam and Michael J !!!
