New York City

Still recounting our trip to New York and New England early in the summer.

We spent the night in Yonkers and headed to New York City in the morning. It took us over 2 hours to go 20 miles. We thought we knew traffic, but in L.A. County we have nothing like that without a major accident.

By the time we made it to Battery Park the line for the ferry to see the statue was so long that we decided not to go. We didn't want to spend that much of our time waiting in line (remember we just sat in traffic for two hours). 

So we set out on foot to see sights around the city.
Ground Zero. This was the end of May.
It's surprising that they finished it by September 11.

New York City Dock

I wouldn't want to live here.

Amish? We already stopped at a place that was
supposed to be Amish, but were dissapointed

Cool display in a clothing store.

Times Square

So many buildings here that there's lots of shade.

Empire State Building

Views from the top.

You can see Central Park.
We never made it there; something for next time.

Sailors we met at the top.

A memorial at a church.

Interesting buildings.

The Subway.
 We walked enough and it's time to rest a bit.

Heading to Long Island under the water thru
the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel.

We spent the night on Long Island with the plan to check out Fire Island the next day,
but there was so much fog that we decided to move on to Connecticut.

Next Connecticut to Boston.
