The view of the Manhattan skyline from nearby Jersey City--just across the Hudson.
We briefly saw the skyline on our drive in Friday night...
let me tell you, this place looks a whole heck of a lot bigger in the daylight!
|We made sure we were up "Jake McSurdy early" so we could watch the sun rise over the city on our walk |
to the PATH station...pretty sure we couldn't have asked for better weather!
|Refugee camp take #2--six adults getting ready in one bathroom; it's a good thing we all get along so well|
...and we were still out the door by 7:00 AM
|This tourist was ready to hit the streets and explore every last inch of the city (it would have taken me months)!|
|Heading underground, only to emerge on the streets of New York City!!|
|Not long after breakfast we saw some of the Occupy protesters and their makeshift tent city|
|Complete with lots of security and barricades|
After getting fueled up with breakfast and caffeine, we spent Saturday seeing the sights...the 9/11 Memorial, Top of the Rock, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Central Park, SoHo, etc., etc., etc. I can't give you all the lowdown in just one blog post, so you'll have to stay tuned! I can't believe it's already been over a week since our trip...that just means I have some major blogging to do so I can share all of our experiences! Don't worry, they're coming...
