The City so nice they named it twice

We are in New Jersey, at the Liberty Harbor RV park.
From our window the view includes the new Tower.  The ferry took us across the Hudson and a bit of wandering around the new World Financial Center and Lower Manhattan.

Federal Hall was the British city hall and became the seat of the new American government and is the very spot where George Washington was sworn in as our first President.  The original building was replaced in 1842, which became the U.S. Customs House and Sub-Treasury.  Now it is part of the National Park Service and is an interesting museum.   
It's just across the street from the Stock Exchange so easy to find next time you're in town. 

This is the view of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge from the restaurant in the South Street Seaport.    It was a delightful way to celebrate 26 years of wedded bliss. 
Today we met friends for lunch and saw "Peter and the Starcatcher,"which is a fabulous show.
  Don't miss it!
