New York - December 2001

Just 3 months after the 11 September we visited New York.  The city desperately trying to come to terms with the violent loss of it's two biggest buildings and some 3,000 of it's residents.

We arrived with fleeces and boots, ready for the infamous cold winds of December in NYC.  The week was the hottest December on record with temperatures in the 60's and a high at 70.

A great week walking the length and breadth of Manhattan, taking in three shows (NY Ballet - Nutcracker, Lion King and the Radio City Christmas Spectacular), enjoying the architectural sights of the city and sensing a city trying to heal itself.

The day before George Harrison had sadly died. 

 Strawberry Fields in the parks was the scene of several groups gathering to pay their respects and sing Beatle songs in the unseasonably warm sunshine
