Yesterday’s adventures included a walking tour of the Financial District, one of the oldest sections of the city and dotted with magnificent buildings. We especially enjoyed St. Paul’s Chapel, where George Washington worshiped and which became a haven for 9/11 rescue workers.

The World Trade Centers were just a block away.
I found Wall Street itself rather cold and forbidding. I actually got a chill of not-the-good-kind in that concrete canyon with its monuments to money. I saw almost no women or people of color there, although I know the Exchanges are diversified now. Eh, the Hippie in me remains, even if she now has a 401(k)!
I couldn’t resist the Charging Bull, however. So cheesy but so New York. As you can see, it’s a popular photo op!
Have a glorious Saturday, and don’t forget: Monday, October 22nd is Visible Monday. Everyone is welcome to participate!
