One World Observatory February 28, 2016

Without any planning we headed downtown to One World Trade Center to see the sensational views from One World Observatory. The views of the City did not disappoint. There were no crowds, no lines – just the City as far as the eye could see. It is fun to try to spy familiar landmarks from such a height. It was a heady experience followed by a visit to the beautiful remembrance space at the 9/11 Memorial at ground level. I recommend this to all.ONEWORLD

We had a real treat this week.  We were invited by my friend, Marc Valitutto, to visit him at the Staten Island Zoo.  Marc is their new General Curator and Veterinarian.  He gave us a fabulous tour and shared some of the plans that he has for this 75 year old zoo.  I look forward to visiting Marc often and watch as his plans come to light.  If you look carefully, you will spot the zoo’s famous Staten Island Chuck, who gives Punxsutawney Phil a run for his money each Ground Hog Day. Not only was the zoo lots of fun, but we got to ride the Staten Island ferry and on the return trip and stopped to visit the beautiful 9/11 Memorial that is right near the ferry and well worth your time.  There is a photo of this lovely spot on the bottom of today’s montage.
