Going to New York?

Walks of New York walking tours are all kinds of interesting. Get behind the scenes at a Broadway show, learn about NYC’s famous crimes with a tour led by a former NYPD officer, explore filming locations for TV and film, visit the MET, explore the 911 Memorial (with priority access), and more.

      Right? It was probably my favorite place we discovered in NYC this trip.

    By linking the story behind the story of the tombstone, I just read a lot of your blog.

    Simply put, I just want to say your story and what you have accomplished is amazing and inspiring.

    If you and Chad are still in NYC now please let me know offline.

      Hey! Thanks for sharing the story in the first place. I was really curious when we were at the cemetery, so it was great to find the full story.

      We just left a few days ago for France, otherwise would shoot you an email. Thanks for the kind words!
