Last week Pickle and I accompanied the 2nd grade on a field trip to Fraunces Tavern Museum. It is the oldest building in Manhattan. A famous event happened there in Colonial Times when George Washington said goodbye to his Comrades.
Photos were not really allowed. I didn’t totally get that message until after I had taken a few snaps, but I did not get the Long Room where the event ACTUALLY took place.
It does seem incredible that New York City existed so long ago and was nothing like it is today. It gave me a deeper appreciation for this crazy town I live in.
