We started off by visiting the South Street Seaport Museum where we stumbled upon Manhattan before people! The Mannahatta Project tells the story about what Manhattan looked like when Henry Hudson stumbled upon it in 1609. To learn more about this incredible glimpse into the not so recent past take a look at this clip: http://www.wcs.org/multimedia/videos/the-mannahatta-project.aspx

health before it was transplanted back to its original home. This is a moving and inspiring place which is a testament to the resilience of our people and nature.

We ended the day by walking on the verdant and popular new High Line Park. What an amazing testament to the power of nature which took root by human design on this old abandoned elevated freight rail line on the West Side of Manhattan. The kids loved it and so did I.
