National 9/11 Memorial and Museum

At our last meet up, one member of our group mentioned that he was one of the New Yorkers caught in the collapse of tower 2 ! This prompted a discussion about visiting the Memorial and Museum. The group consensus was that everyone would be more likely to visit the site, and more comfortable visiting the site, with others.

It seemed like a good idea do do just that. No doubt, it could be both a powerful and rewarding experience.

Just to assure you that we are also planning future lighter, fun events, others in the group suggested bowling. I like that idea, especially is we hire a pro to coach ! (Do we have any gay expert bowlers in the group?)

Bowling will be our meet up for August. Look for details to come.

Hope you will join us on July 17th. Our assembly time will be 11:00 and our meet spot TBD in the next few days.

Looking forward,

Frank

    Wrenching. Something that everyone should see. Thanks for the opportunity to do so.

    Really glad I went. I was hesitant to go alone, and really appreciate the company and support.

    Next time- something camp!

    So lucky to have good company on this outing. It was an honor to tour the museum with men in our group who were first responders at the Twin Towers and others who directly experienced the day and aftermath. Your personal stories were an important part of the visit. Thanks for sharing.

    Rob and I enjoyed the company for this exhibit. The space was very beautiful. I appreciated the memorial, tribute hall, and building history more than the 9/11 part which was a bit too graphic for me.

    The museum was emotionally challenging. It was full of tourists who appeared to view the exhibits as a curiosity. We got separated unfortunatel. Me and Jono saw much if the museum together
    I am glad I was able to be there

    I'm sorry guys, but I have emergency construction going on at my home, and I won't be able to make it tomorrow.

    I went last Tuesday (it's free on Tuesday night). Don't know how it would be with a group, esp. since much of it you will want to view in silence. I went with my bf and 2 other friends, and we basically all wandered on our own and then met up at the end. It's a magnificent space, but much of the material exhibited will be familiar to those of you who were here when it happened. I did a lot of people-watching to see the reactions of tourists and young people.

    Looking forward to getting together for this. I was getting out of Fulton St subway stop on way to work at Amex Tower in WFC when I saw the smoke of north tower. Walking away when I heard second plane hit. Turned to see fireball. Lost many friends and people I knew at Cantor Fitzgerald.

    I'm going to have to pass on this one. I wish I could join you, but I'm just not ready for it.

    I got free tix for a Tuesday evening (it's free if you log into the museum website at 9 A.M. on a Tuesday and reserve for a Tuesday 2 weeks in advance). So I will pass on this one.

    Hi guys. Sorry, my comment below suggesting the group lunch was not for the museum day. You really need about 3 hours in the museum in order to take it all in. I suggest future and upcoming afternoon meet up we may look into a lunch in the village or Chelsea, where we all can relax and chat. Enjoy the day all

    June 25, 2014

  • Tony D.

    There are plenty of places, nearby also. Chinatown is not too far away. The village is always accessible. There are plenty of choices. For now I think we need to concentrate on where we meet. I am looking forward to this meet up and have been stocking up on tissues. I would be happy to talk to folks about my experiences that day and during the aftermath.

    How about a group lunch in Chelsea or the village, lots of nice places to go for lunch

    June 24, 2014

  • Tony

    Hi. I was at the museum on opening day in May, it's a trip well worth it. For sure bring tissues. Hope to see you all at another upcoming event.
