Bad weather day: after an amazing few hours with the dinosaur bones, North American birds, primates, meteorites, minerals, and crystals, we ended up walking 1.62 miles in heavy rain, sans umbrellas—from 79th Street at Central Park West to the Apple Store at the southeast corner of the park. Miserable. Thankfully, I had my All-Weather camera case with me (i.e., a plastic grocery bag).
Went to 5:30 Mass at St. Patrick’s cathedral. What a beautiful building, and such precise craftsmanship. Took a cab down to Strand Books, and before leaving, drove down to the WTC site.
