Our second day in the city was filled with touristy stuff. Which was actually a lot of fun, in spite of the drizzly, dreary, 50 degree day.
We started out on the Staten Island Ferry…which provided lots of photo opportunities with beautiful views of the skyline and the Statue of Liberty. And it was free!
Then we walked. We walked through Grand Central Terminal, ate lunch downstairs in the food court, and then walked to the Empire State Building – after a quick stop off at the library for a few more photos. Yes, the ESB is predictable and touristy. And it’s expensive, and the lines are crazy-long. We know. But the kids have never been…and it’s just one of those things you have to do.
And those views! You really cannot beat them.
After that, we were beat. We had a quick dinner and called it an early night.
