Friday: March 17, 2006

Our last full day in New York City we visited some of the sites in the city. .We started off the morning at Ground Zero and St. Paul's Church which sits right beside where the World Trade Center used to stand. It was a very somber moment for the group as we remembered the people who lost there lives in the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

We had lunch at the TEN-EYCK TROUGHTON MEMORIAL RESIDENCE which is run by the Salvation Army and serves women and students. Following lunch we met with Tamar Auber of Salvation Army, who graduated from WV Weslyan College and was at the WTC when they were attacked. She shared her experiences andmemories of the day of the attack and the work she did following the attacks at Ground Zero.

Then it was off to Radio City Music Hall where we toured the facility and got updates on the WVU Basketball game. After we finished at Radio City Music Hall we had freetime until it was time to attend our Broadway shows. Some of the group went tot he museums while others shopped around Times Square. For our Broadway shows the group split with one group going to Beauty and the Beast and the rest going to The Producers
