Located in the Back Bay of Boston city, Massachusetts, the Trinity Church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese. The fellowship is currently standing at around 3,000 households, which was founded in the year 1733. On every Sunday, four services are offered and the services are offered three times a week on weekdays. This practice is continued from the month of September through June. While continuing to be a Broad Church parish, Trinity is considered as “Low Church.”
Why Niagara Falls?
All the water from the Great Lakes is collected by the Niagara River which is around 20% of the fresh water in the world. For the past 12,000 years, the tumultuous currents of the tremendously powerful Niagara Falls have sculptured out a 7-mile (11km) canyon like area on the lower Niagara. Huge amounts of water flow over the Falls every second and is flattened upon entering the narrow gorge that creates the whitewater playground.
The term “Capitol Hill” refers strictly to the slightly inclined location in central Washington, D.C. where the United States Capitol building is located, or to the building itself that houses the legislative branch of the government of the American republic. It is also commonly used, sometimes positively and sometimes not, to refer to the legislators themselves and the people who work for and with them. Whatever the meaning of the term, the place is one of the most-visited sites in the nation’s capital and a very historic location in a unique city filled with history. Like many of the tourist attractions in Washington, the facilities and museums on or near Capitol Hill are easy to get to and are for the most part free.
Wall Street is a physical location in lower Manhattan, the shorthand term for the Financial District in New York City and a symbol of capitalism, free enterprise and the banking and financial industries in American politics and popular culture. It is also part of the poignantly historic area created by the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as the areas associated with the early days of the American republic, when New York was the capital of the new nation, and the historic parts of the Lower East Side that were the first homes in America for generations of immigrants who went on to leave their mark on the growing country. The Wall Street area is easy to get to, has more places than it used to for tourists to eat and stay and shop and should eventually be a part of every visitor’s New York experience.
From Great Kill to Center of the Universe
Times Square, the five-block section of central Manhattan in which Broadway crosses Seventh Avenue, calls itself “the crossroads of New York” and “the center of the universe”. It is clearly the most-visited tourist attraction in the United States and perhaps in the world; on average, half a million people pass through Times Square every day, and on special occasions like V-J day at the end of World War II or the changing of the millennium on New Year’s Eve in 1999 as many as two million people have filled the two connected triangles that form Times Square.
From the Pilgrims to the Tea Party
The city of Boston became America’s first metropolis and one of the country’s chief ports because of its natural harbor, which was discovered in 1614 by Captain John Smith. Smith, who was in charge of the first English settlements in Virginia and is linked in legend and literature today to the Indian princess Pocohontas, also discovered the Cape Ann and the Charles River, and published a map in 1616 that was the first to use the term “New England”.
History of the Fort
Fort Niagara is the oldest continuously-occupied military installation in North America. Built by the French to protect their interests in what was then New France, it became a crucial installation in the northern reaches of British North America and since the War of 1812 has been home to detachments of the United States Army and later the Coast Guard. The site today is a National Historical Landmark, part of the National Register of Historic Places, the central attraction of both a New York state park and a federal National Historic Area and a functioning fortress that preserves the military methods and lifestyle of the 18th and 19th century. It may also be haunted, and is a site of great interest to students of the paranormal.
Beginnings of Lady Liberty
The colossal neoclassical sculpture that has stood at the entrance to New York harbor since 1886 symbolizes New York City in the way that the Eiffel Tower means Paris and Big Ben instantly evokes London. The figure of “Liberty Enlightening the World” was a gift from the people of France, and the inspiration for it first came during the American Civil War, when most of the French people strongly approved of the abolition of slavery.
Large universities are always interesting places to visit, but many campuses have sites of historical importance, buildings of distinction or museums of interest. Harvard University, the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States, has all three, and can easily be reached from Boston, which is about 3 miles (4.8 km) to the southeast, by highways along the Charles River, city streets and buses or the Red Line subway of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, Boston’s famous “T”.
The sight and sound, and often the wet feel as well, of Niagara Falls are unique experiences. Many visitors also enjoy experiencing the Falls and learning about its history from a dry and comfortable seat in the Niagara Adventure Theater at Niagara Falls State Park in New York. Niagara Falls State Park was America’s first state park, established in 1885, and is today the center of the visitor experience on the American side of the Falls.
