NYC Tourist Day 1

Today we picked up our bus tickets and NYC passes for the weekend. Then grabbed some breakfast at a cafe and took off for 9/11 Memorial and Ellis Island.

The 9/11 museum was sombering. The history that I was alive for but didn't fully remember. Walt talked about what he was doing when it occurred. Took a few photos but really you have to go to get the full affect.





After that we jumped back on the tour bus and took off for The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The ferry ride was quick and breezy which was nice. Just stayed on and took picture of Lady Liberty. Ellis island was interesting but a little disappointing. Due to hurricane Sandy in 2012 they lost A/C, power and tons of other things, so most of the artifacts have been removed for safe keeping until the A/C is fixed for temperate regulation. It was hot in there today, can only imagine what it felt like for the 1,000s coming through years ago.



After our tourist adventures we hailed a taxi (Im becoming a pro at it) and came back to the hotel to nap a little before dinner.

Dinner was at Ninja New York. It was delicious. The service was amazing and I highly recommend it. They do jump scares through out your meal but they are so funny. Good way to keep you laying attention and making conversation.




Facts we learned while on bus tour:

     80% of a building has to be covered in advertisement to be in Times Square

      SoHo use to be a mercantile district now it's just used for clothing shops since nothing is made in NYC        anymore. Most buildings are cast iron.

Now we are back at the hotel with a tentative game plan for tomorrow.

Look out Cakeroons and Central Park here we come.

FIT BIT STEP COUNT:

TTFN,
