  Kiki's play group meets on Friday mornings directly across from where the World Trade Center once stood.

A majority of the women in the group come from the islands – from Japan and Ireland, Long Island and Rhode Island. Perhaps they are drawn to the water. They also come from places like Venezuela, South Korea, Iran, Vancouver British Columbia, Westchester and L.A.

They have in common a certain strength and optimism. But mostly, they share a concern for their new children – Hector and Yasuhito, Skyler, Kianna, Alannah, Rachel and Taku. Lest we forget, Celia and Cate, Connor and Kian. For getting them to eat their peas and carrots, for “setting limits” and for coping with life in Battery Park City in 2002.
