Sight seeing from Liberty Marina and sitting out a gale
Date Tuesday 18 September 2012
We certainly got the days and the weather the right way around as
The south pool, one of two large pool set in the footprint of the original towers and forming the core of the Memorial Site
The Memorial Tree, a survivor from the original park
We managed to get tickets for Evita from the TKTS last minute both in Times Square
Before taking the Metro down to the bottom of Fifth Avenue and having a very late lunch, tea at the Restaurant Otto which is close to the Washington Centenary Memorial
We managed a trip to the top of the Marriott Hotel, the theatre being on the third floor. The view from the 48th floor bar was stunning and so were the price of drinks so we slummed it back on the 8th which was better for Andrew’s wallet and my vertigo.
Evita was wonderful. I could not get my camera out quickly enough to get the curtain call but the set is a good reminder.
