New York - Day 2 ☀️ -
Day 2 Schedule
1. Walked through Chinatown and bought some groceries, forgot to take a pic of my bubble tea, and saw a pretty church.
2. Visited the Smithsonian Museum of Native Americans (forgot the name 😅) and learned about their history.
3. Went to Wall Street in the Financial district and took a cool photo of the city and our lunch (because I’m so pHotOgeNiC).
4. Visited the World Trade Center (the window looking up actually aligns with Freedom Tower so that was interesting to look at) and bought nothing because everything was expensive :)
5. After the flash flood ended, we walked out to take pics of Freedom Tower in all its glory.
6. Visited the 9/11 Memorial.
7. Looked at Oculus and at that point we were essentially done with seeing everything so we headed “home.”
8. Got y’all a pic of my tamarind drink you happy? 😂
you have an opportunity
to be a part of another's
healing; to step into their
brokenness, to walk with
them through their shame,
and to see them change.
but you also have a choice;
so if you see brokenness
and walk away, you affirm
to them that their shards of
shame need to remain hidden.
here is the choice: we can
walk AWAY or walk WITH.
to walk with is to walk despite
brokenness and pain, and
despite the shards of shame;
when we walk with, we choose
the journey over judgement. we
choose to love despite; the kind
of Love that can only come from
an overflow. yes, this is a journey,
this is the opportunity: to Love like
the One who brings
healing in His Name.
Photo by @mborowick | Catching a lighting strike is pretty much as hard as it sounds. But when it happens, its pure magic and really shows the raw power of Mother Nature. The Freedom Tower which stands at 1,776 feet high, making it the tallest structure in Manhattan and the perfect conductor for something like this to happen. #lightning#nature#nyc#freedomtower#explore
Photo by @mborowick | This was one of those incredibly magical summer sunsets in New York City. The Freedom Tower in Lower Manhattan can be seen starting to be illuminated as the sun begins to set. These beautiful pastel like colors make this scene look like a watercolor painting instead of a photograph. #freedomtower#sunset#nyc#explore#summer
Manhattan’s Famous Grid: The Commissioners’ Plan, now known as the original Manhattan Street Grid, came in response to huge population growth in Manhattan from 1790 to 1810. As the population nearly tripled, public health issues increased. This, along with limited space available for housing and infrastructure, encouraged city leaders to adopt a new street plan to be developed above Houston Street. Before the grid, the topography of upper Manhattan was described as “a rural area of streams and hills populated by a patchwork of country estates, farms and small houses.” The new street plan avoided changing the streetscape of Greenwich Village and other downtown areas because most of the city’s population lived above North Street, known as Houston Street today. The plan also avoided constructing through Stuyvesant Street because of its eminence at the time and large amounts of congestion. Today, Stuyvesant Street remains the only compass-tested east-to-west street in Manhattan.
