Day 2 in NYC turned out to be the busiest day EVER. Just keep in mind that we didn't take a cab anywhere... we walked EVERYWHERE except when it was faster to get on the Subway.
From there, we left the Met and bought ourselves a sweet hot dog from a street vendor (classy!) and then we walked ACROSS Central Park. It's a really big park. Painfully so. We did all this to enjoy one of these:
We hopped on the Subway and ended up in Chinatown. Then we remembered that we didn't really want to be in Chinatown. So we got BACK on the Subway and rode it to Ground Zero.
I wish I could explain to you the feeling that exists there. It's as if the rest of NYC is bustling right along and it's loud and noisy and dirty... and when we walked by Ground Zero (which is really all you can do right now... there's not much to see. Hence, no pictures.) I felt a distinct calm. I was moved to tears.
From Ground Zero, it's just a couple quick blocks to the Brooklyn Bridge, which we decided to walk over (since we were staying in Brooklyn with Matt's cousin and her family).
Really cool! Wonderful views of the city. Breezy.
As always, Libby was a dreamboat.
I'm enjoying your visit to NYC. We went last summer but it was such a quick trip. I don't miss the dirt though. Hope your toesies have recovered from all the walk.
What an awesome day! But duh...you planned on walking all over NYC and you wore flip flops?! ROFL
What a fun day! How great it is too get away. Lucky Ducks!
