Chris and I were so excited to have Cari and Andy come visit us in Connecticut a few weeks ago! Andy had to work at the Danbury office the following week, so he and Cari both flew up on Thursday night and stayed through the weekend. Unfortunately the weather was rainy so we didn't get to go hiking like we had planned, and the poor weather did nothing to help me convince Cari that she wants to live in Connecticut one day! But we went into NYC on Saturday night and stayed through Sunday afternoon and had fun despite the rain.
Our hotel was right across the street from Ground Zero and we could see the work they're doing from our window. They seem to work almost round the clock and almost every day of the week...which is why the hotel thoughtfully provides earplugs! I had never been to Ground Zero before and I was glad to finally be able to pay my respects. Saturday night we took the subway to Times Square and had a delicious dinner in Little Italy. On Sunday we walked around Central Park and had a HUGE lunch at a place called Maxie's before taking Cari to the airport. Thanks again for visiting, Sarantapoulases! :)

The cross was one block down from our hotel and Ground Zero. I think this is only a temporary location for it, though.
HUGE Reuben Sandwich!! Both Chris and Andy got them and neither of them could finish.
