From the church website:
"Oklahoma Loves You"
The chapel has been there a long time. George Washington worshiped there the day of his inaugural - here's a depiction of that event.
It was good to see all of the construction going on at Ground Zero.
I haven't kept up with the plans, but from the internet I found these pictures of the future.
A crew member got this shot of your intrepid travelers.
We got lots of ill-focused and -framed shots of the shore from a bouncing boat. At the Statue, The Beast paused for a calm photo-op. As you probably read, the Lady Liberty is open again and you can climb the stairs to the top, but those tickets are sold out long in advance.
Going out, folks on the other side of the boat got sprayed royally. Coming back it was our turn. Jason really got a kick from that part of the ride.
Anyhow, we saw another good game. The Mets beat the Rockies on an eighth-inning grand slam home run by pinch-hitter, Fernando Tatis. Our seats were in left field, a few rows up from the fence, an area that was treated to four home runs and several long fly balls during the game.
(It was interesting: on the subway ride after the game we were sitting next to a chap from Tennessee who had also come to NYC for the baseball weekend. I believe he did two Yankee games and the Mets game.)
We all flew home the next morning with great memories and some musing about future years -- say Chicago/Milwaukee, or LA/Anaheim/San Diego, ...
