START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – A VISIT TO THE SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH MEMORIAL ON STATEN ISLAND .

You  all  have  left  the  Staten  Island  Ferry  at

Saint  George  Terminal .

You’re  going  to  stay  pretty  close  to  the  terminal  since  you  all  don’t  know  your  way  around  this  borough .

Not  far  from  the  terminal  is the  ballpark  where  the  Staten  Island  Yankees  baseball  team  play   their  games .

That’s  right ,  they’re  the  minor  league  team  of those  Yankees  who play  in  that  big ballpark  in the  Bronx .

As you  all  walk  along  the  waterfront  even  your  cousin  can’t  help  but  notice  how  calm  the  water  looks .

Finally  you  all  seem  what  you’ve  come  to  see  on Staten  Island .

The  September  11th  Memorial .

It’s  not  as  big  as  the  one  in the  city ,  but  just  as  sobering .

Especially  that  sculpture  that’s  supposed  to  represent  the  wings  of  an airplane.

This  memorial  honors  the  first  responders  who did  on that  day .

You  can  imagine  the National  September  11th  Memorial  in  Manhattan  will  be  even  more  sobering .

You all  say  nothing  but just  walk  back  to  the  Saint  George  Ferry  Terminal  for  the  trip  into  the  city .
