    It's a nice place.

    I always take a few minutes to visit it every time I travel back home, which is usually twice a year.

    The FDNY engine crushed at Ground Zero with it's crew killed, which is in the Museum at the other end of the mall, is the thing that really chokes me up though.

    It is always sobering to walk through there.....

    Next time you come up, please let me know....I may be able to arrange a private tour of some of the collection if you like.....of course I'd like to meet in person too!
