I visited NYC for the first time in July of 2002, less than a year after 9-11. I'll never forget what I saw; a vast, empty hole in the ground surrounded by tall buildings, some still covered in protecting plastic. My second trip was in December of 2009. My husband, brother and I rang in the year 2011 in Times Square with hundreds of thousands of other crazies! Glad to check it off my bucket list, but never again will I stand in Times Square for 12 hours in 34 degree weather!
