We started the day off by using PATH, light rail, then a bus to get us to Liberty State Park in New Jersey to catch a ferry to see the Statue if Liberty. The ferry leaves from an old train station where many of the immigrants who went through Ellis Island would board trains for all parts of the country.
To go up into the pedestal, we had to wait in a line for over an hour. Here is the original torch that was replaced in the 80’s…
We made a quick stop at Ellis Island but did not hang there long. Here is a picture of Michael with some of the buildings. It looks like he is in deep thought, he is really making sure his glasses do not fall off while looking down at the water.
Even though we were really tired, we figured how often do we get to New York, so we walked the Brooklyn Bridge.
We then stopped by the Sony Wonder Labs. Lots of cool tech stuff that the kids really enjoyed.
Then we ran by Mickey Mantel’s Restaurant…
We were going to eat there, but having to spend $60 for dinner was just too much, so we went by Grand Central again and ate in the the food concourse. Cheap and easy.
We also ended up walking by this place…
After that, back to New Jersey to pack up. We board a train tomorrow morning to return home.
Should be able to make a post tomorrow from DC.
