NY Police Museum

The NYPD police museum was a very interesting spot. The highlight for the boys was the physical conditioning area whey there had to run up and over steps as many times as possible in a minute.

The highlight for Marcia and Bryce was the in depth exhibit on 9/11. It was moving and powerful. The city has really done a lot to step up security since the attacks, including cameras on every inch of lower Manhattan with artificial intelligence programs that analyze every person, object and look for possible threats. I feel safer knowing the lengths the city is going to!

There was also an interesting section on mobsters, complete with actual weapons from famous villains like Al Capone. Watch your step or you'll be sleeping with the fishes!
