After we finished up our shopping in Times Square, and stopped to eat lunch (in the Hard Rock Cafe of course), we headed on the Subway to Battery Park to catch a ferry to Liberty Island to see the Statue of Liberty.
I don’t think you can truly appreciate this magnificent monument without seeing up and close and in person.
After a nice stop on the island for a few pictures, we headed back to Manhattan, for another subway ride back to Rockefeller Plaza.
We walked by Radio City Music Hall. Deep Purple was playing there that night…..Oh if I could have only stayed another day….
Our final stop was at St. Patrick’s Cathedral which is a short walk from Rockefeller Plaza. This is the most amazing church you will see anywhere. Both inside, and out, this building was breathtaking.
After a long tiring day, with lots of walking, we headed back to Grand Central Station in time to catch the second to last train back to Poughkeepsie.
It was a full day affair in the Big Apple, and there many sights that we didn’t get a chance to see, but we still caught our fair amount. New York City isn’t nearly as frightening as it seems. I would like to go back when I have more time.
I have attached a slideshow below with more pictures that I took along the way. Enjoy!
