It was worth paying to go into the museum and get on one of the tours. The place is so well thought out and respectful of the tragedy that happened there on 9/11.

cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
