Well, plans have changed: We won’t be going to New York, but rather to Boston, from March through May. (It’s just a fast train away from Grand Central though, so I may still be able to go to NYC, but it’s not my main priority.)
Freemasonry in Massachusetts celebrates its 275th anniversary this year, and I’ll definitely be visiting the Grand Lodge. They also have a museum (you can catch a five minute presentation of some of its items on NPR), and the website has a virtual tour. Other than that I don’t have any specific plans; I intent to visit some lodges in Boston itself of course, and maybe also one a little further to the south.
Already very much looking forward to this part of the journey!
