Do it the New York way, by subway and on foot. Take the subway to the Financial District. On Wall Street, pause at Federal Hall and say hi to Alexander Hamilton at Trinity Church. After lunch ascend One World Observatory with 360° views. Below, reflect at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. Pause in the West Village at the sight of the Stonewall Riots, a flashpoint that began the LBGTQ community’s fight for Civil Rights 50 years ago.
