Starting at the historical St. Paul's Chapel, the little chapel that withstood the destruction of the events of 911, you'll learn its ties to the birth of our nation. The tour also introduces FDNY Captain John Jonas and his team "the Dragon Fighters." There we'll continued to an overlook of the World Trade Center Memorial Plaza. From this vantage, one could see the entire complex which includes One World Trade Center, the Reflecting Pools, and the 911 Museum.

Where over 500,000 civilians were evacuated by watercrafts of all sizes. Next we'll visit the reconstructed Winter Gardens, the $60 million 10 story glass pavilion that was devastated during the attacks of September 11th. Next we'll visit the Eleven Tears Memorial, dedicated to the eleven American Express employees lost on that day.
