In four days we visited the Chelsea Market, Ground Zero, Staten Island, Times Square, walked the streets of New York, and went to
the Top of the Rock on the evening of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree Lighting.  We went to the Picasso exhibition at the Guggenheim.
We also spent much time exploring Central Park, and, of course, attended the splendid exhibition opening at Agora Gallery on the
twenty-ninth of November.  We also saw two shows on Broadway, The Heiress and Nice Work if You Can Get It. The latter is strongly
recommended!  Brilliant production, I loved it. 
I have been greatly touched by this journey.  I found myself trying to take as many photos as possible, including photos featuring the
United States flag. The biggest impressions on me have been the friendliness of the people, which started from the minute we boarded
the plane in London.  I  have been emotionally moved over and over. I was awed and touched by the resilience, strength and respect felt
at Ground Zero. The Freedom Tower is inspirational, as it rises beside the footprints of the Twin Towers. From the Remembrance Park, it
rises, giving hope and faith for the future and, for me, emphasizes the strength of the nation based on the liberty and fraternity which
is the hallmark of the USA.  You can see I am greatly moved by it all.
It was an amazing four days and I hope I shall return again. 
Many thanks to all at Agora once again for adding to the enjoyment of our stay.
“I was awed and touched by the resilience, strength and respect felt at Ground Zero.”
