Stopover in New York

Impressions from New York city on my way to Columbus, OH 

This year I visited the ASTC (Association of Science and Technology Centers) conference for the first time. It took place in Columbus, Ohio and I used a stopover in New York to visit the Hall of Science and take a stroll through downtown Manhattan. It has been about 20 years, since I have been there and it is unbelievable how much it changed. I also visited the 9/11 memorial and it was a very emotional moment, that I haven't expected to be so strong. But a beautiful rainbow, caused by the mist of one of the huge water bassins, added some peaceful magic to that moment, so I was glad I went to see it and even taking the seven (or more?) security checkpoints that you have to pass on your way to get there.
