As many of you know, my husband, Dr. Bittel, graduated from the Southern California College of Optometry last Friday. He graduated with a 3.98 and was the Salutatorian. I've honestly never been prouder of anybody in my entire life. I wanted to do something big for his graduation so I surprised him with a trip to New York City the next day. I'm so proud of all of our family and friends, and most of all, myself for keeping it a secret! We had such an amazing trip! I know, there are a lot of pictures, but I took over 600. Here are just a few of my favorites!

Central Park

St. Patrick's Cathedral

The Top of the Rock at Sunset

Wall Street and the Stock Exchange. Much smaller than I expected it to be!

Trinity Church

View of the Statue of Liberty from Battery Park

Ground Zero. Everyone said when they saw it, it seemed a lot smaller than they expected it to be. I thought it was much bigger than I expected it to be. I just kept looking up trying to imagine what they would have looked like. Words really can't describe what it felt like to be there.

St. Paul's Chapel is literally steps away from Ground Zero. This is where all the rescue workers congregated during the recovery process. It would have been destroyed when the towers fell if it wasn't for the 200 year old trees in front of it. The little church was left untouched except for one tree that fell. It's now basically a memorial to 9/11.

Our hotel is on the left and that's the Chrysler Building in the background. Right after I took this picture the lights on the Chrysler Building went out.
