Flew back in this morning after a great holiday in New York. Mostly sightseeing but also some shopping and Macy's was looking festive. The Freedom Tower was amazing although photos were not the best due to reflections off the glass.
Words cannot describe the feeling at the 9/11 memorial. The two water features with names of all the victims cover the exact footprint of the two towers. We also saw the museum with tributes paid to emergency services and there were some recovered artifacts. So sad but so respectfully done.
The Empire State at night was great as was the helicopter trip and you will see a new tall skyscraper in the photos I selected. It is 432 Park Avenue and if you include the antenna on top of the ESB and Freedom Tower, it is the 3rd tallest building. By roof height it is actually the tallest! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/432_Park_Avenue
We flew back in business class with American Airlines thanks to a discounted upgrade and gained access to their luxury lounge at JFK. The very large seats folded to different angles including flat for sleep! Good food and proper plates etc.
Here's some pics:
