An Open Top Bus Ride, Battery Park, National September 11 Memorial and Greenwich Village

It makes sense doesn't it to take an open top bus ride and see the sights and then decide where to go? We took the bus ride Downtown on the second whole day, it took 2 hours to reach Battery Park, and we learned a lot more than by perusing the guide books.

Above Times Square again, below the Woolworth Building

 Above another view of the Chrysler Building, and below the Flat Iron Building
 And below 3 photos of splendid additions to buildings:

Above the Cable building, built in 1892-4.
It's in No Ho which is part of Greenwich Village.
There were some beautifully planted gardens at Battery Park along with lots of ferry docks and a National Museum of the American Indian:
From there we walked to the One World Trade Centre and the Memorial entitled 'Reflecting Absence'. Below is the lower part of the building
 And here are the pools:
 Work is still going on in the area of World Trade centre redevelopment.
 From there we tried to find Greenwich Village, we found a gardening initiative called Green Thumb, some shops selling cowboy boots, but am still unsure where it is, we'd need to have spent more time looking.
Looks like part of a larger organisation.
