A Visit To Federal Hall National Memorial in NYC (6/8/2011)

So I realize that I sat on these images since taking them a few months ago and for that I apologize because one of my core aims with this blog is to spark your interest in what I see and find myself involved in. My hope is that the images and thoughts spark your desire to go to see this stuff for yourself. I had taken these shots when I was walking around with my musician friend The Muff from the Finnish band Naked. We were doing a city wander and needed to be near this historical site for a meeting he was doing. I couldn’t recall the last time I had ventured inside the Federal Hall National Memorial and that made me walk inside to take some photos for my own use and your enjoyment.

This site is most famous for being the place where George Washington was inaugurated into the office of President of the United States. Since he was our very first President this was a very, very big deal. They also introduced the Bill Of Rights to Congress on this location. I’ll keep the discussion light because there is a Wiki link at the close that you can learn all the more from. Here we go.

While we walked around the artifacts there was a ranger present who was discussing exactly what we were looking at. That really helped out and made it all the more interesting. Did I mention that this museum is free of charge to explore? Well it is, and you should definitely come on in and look around. Its not really a big space so you can do this on your lunch hour and be in the presence of the spirit of George Washington and the birth of these United States. I hope you enjoyed this presentation, see you next time.
