Tidings to all, my son and I arrive at JFK tomorrow. On Sunday, at about 5:00 after a Yankees game, my son has decided that he'd like to go down to the WTC site and pay a bit of homage. We understand that there is really not much to "see" that he'd remember of the former area, but we had a policeman relative that left us on some floor of the north tower that morning, so it is something my son wants to do that I am perfectly willing to support. Just a few minutes there to pay respects before moving on.
What I'd like to do is start there and then catch a train back uptown a bit, maybe to Canal, walk up Greene Street to see the cast iron buildings in SoHo, then up through the Village and the surrounding area, and finally wind up somewhere around 20th and 5th, where we plan a late supper.
At one point on here, I thought I recall seeing a walking tour of this general type, but I cannot find it for the life of me. Can anyone help? We are sturdy walkers and subway vets.
