Because Midwest Airlines had a ridiculous sale and I found a hotel bargain on kayak.com, I decided to go to New York City for the weekend on a whim. The last time I was there for an entire week, but I was taking technical training during the day. They had canceled my Washington DC training class because of a terrorist attack, and ironically rescheduled me for a few weeks later in New York City. I want to hit the highlights this weekend. I want to go back to the top of the Empire State Building again. I'd like to see Ground Zero now that they've cleaned up the mess. The last time I was there, it was a six-story tall, stinking pile of smoking steel girders and there was a layer of dust on everything. I accidently walked past a barricade to go see it. After leaving the site, I stood in front of Nino's, the restaurant that served free meals to the rescue workers and stared at the notes and pictures for quite a while before moving on. There were pictures memorializing firemen hanging on the front of all the firehouses, even the ones in Midtown. I'm hoping this trip will be much lighter. I got to see some great museums while I was there before, but didn't have enough time to see all of them. I'm hoping to hit some of the ones I missed.
