Remembering 9/11

9/11 Memorial in New York City

Everyone has their story of where they were and what they were doing when they first heard about the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centers. September 11, 2001 instantly became a new moment in history, a moment generations to come will learn about in school curricula. Whether you were on your way to work, packing the kids’ lunches, sitting through a biology lecture, or just waking up for the day, you likely stopped everything, fixated on the nearest television set, and watched in horror as our nation fell victim to a foreign foe. Images of smoke and flames blazing from the twin towers will forever be branded in our minds, and as the buildings collapsed, so did America’s sense of security.

Simply put, it was scary. A communal fear swept the country, and for the first time in a while, our future was uncertain. Thankfully we didn’t let that fear cripple us; it brought us closer together, and instead of just thinking as individuals, we began to think as a nation. For a brief period of time, our political affiliations didn’t matter. American flags popped up on street corners and doorsteps. Sons, daughters, fathers and mothers were deployed, and we were joined together with a common goal: to stand strong.

Fast forward 11 years, and we all still take a moment to reflect on September 11, 2001. Even as we prepare for another presidential election and allow ourselves to become divided over the candidates, we still remember that ultimately, our unity serves as our strength. So today, Reserve123 would like to recognize America’s resilience. We honor the lives lost and extend a massive “thank you” to every soldier who has fought for our freedoms in any way. Here’s to our continued fortitude.

“In New York, concrete jungle
where dreams are made of
There’s nothin’ you can’t do
Now you’re in New York
These streets will make you
feel brand new
Big lights will inspire you
Let’s hear it for New York,
New York, New York”

I think that Alicia Keys and Jay-Z summed it up pretty well. New York really is like being on another planet; a great melting pot of culture, design, architecture, and attitude.

My brother and I visited NYC a few years ago, and had a great time sightseeing in the city and visiting the Empire State Building. For my first visit to New York, I decided to go with a classic – the New York Classic Double Decker Tour, to be precise – to gain a nice overview of New York City and Manhattan.

It’s easy to get lost in the endless sights and sounds and lights everywhere, and this tour covers the major sightseeing spots and landmarks of the city.

You will enjoy the best sights in Manhattan during the day and at night, with unlimited hop-on, hop-off service at over 40 stops on our double decker bus. There is an Uptown Loop, Downtown Loop, Brooklyn Loop, and The Night Loop, and your pass is good for 48 hours to use as you wish.

Plus, this fun-filled tour includes a ticket for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty / Ellis Island AND admission ticket to either the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. What more could you ask for? Well, stopping for pizza along the way of course, if you’re like me. 8)
