Trinity Church Observations
I arrived at Trinity Church on Sunday between the hours of 11am and 12pm. While I was observing or ‘people watching’ I noticed quite a few people going to and from Trinity Church. Most people were families including mothers, fathers, child or children, while others were just alone. All dressed fairly nicer than the random people walking the streets of New York City. While there were many families I could have observed, I chose one family in particular. The whole family was dressed in what I would describe as their Sunday best. The mother was wearing what seemed to be a turquoise knee-length dress since her big puffy coat was in the way, with black shoes; the father was wearing a black coat and a pair of black slacks and nice shoes, and the little girl I assumed to be their daughter was wearing what appeared as a pink dress or skirt with a pink winter jacket flaunting, white stockings and white shoes. They seemed like a happy family as they walked into the church at approximately 11:10. As I previously mentioned, the family had on their winter coats and jackets. The weather was quite chilly out, the wind making it feel as though it was 30 degrees out. I was sitting there with my winter coat on with a scarf and gloves. Seeming as though it was a Sunday early afternoon, the foot traffic was not too bad, but since mass started at approximately 11:15, many people were making their way into the Trinity Church at this time. As the family was making their way into Trinity Church they were all smiling and laughing although I was unable to make out what they were saying. Although I was able to hear some of the ideas they had for lunch after mass. The little girl insisting on grilled cheese. As they walked inside of Trinity Church, the family became more quite; the mother advising her daughter to quiet down. Their mood still seemed lightened as they quietly walked into the Church.
