Thursday, April 26th- Trip to 9/11 Memorial & Museum with time at Chelsea Market

6:30 AM Depart Rose City Senior Center, 8 Mahan Drive, Norwich

8:45 PM Approximate return time to Norwich

Your memorable day starts with time on your own to shop and dine at Chelsea Market in Manhattan.  Built in the former National Biscuit Company factory complex, Chelsea Market fills two entire city blocks.  This enclosed building is now home to an urban food court, restaurants and food stores.  Chelsea Market also houses television production companies including The Food Network.

Following lunch, you will be dropped off at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum.  Build on the former World Trade Center site, the Memorial & Museum is a tribute to those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.  The Memorial’s twin reflecting pools, each nearly one acre in size, sit within the footprints of where the Twin Towers once stood and have the names of those who died inscribed into bronze panels edging the pools.

Opened in 2014, the Museum tells the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of monumental and authentic artifacts.  The museum presents the intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning and recovery in the telling of the story of the 9/11 attacks and aftermath.

COST: $66 per person  includes admission to 9/11 Memorial & Museum and transportation.

Driver tip is not included.  Lunch is on your own at Chelsea Market.

There will be one rest stop on the way to New York and one on the return trip home.
