Times Square near Broadway
All the pretty lights
US Post Office
Flat Iron building
Lots of high buildings
Napping boy with Cousin Lauren, who David adores (and so do we!)
For lunch, we got off in China Town,
and we walked to Little Italy. We ate at Grotta Azzurra Ristorante- delicious!
Lunch in Little Italy
We walked through China Town and Little Italy, then back on the bus to tour the Financial District.
Michael walked through the city with a football in hand.
St Paul's Chapel
The Freedom Tower, which was so tall I couldn't get the tip in the picture. This is called One World Trade Center, and it's at the site of where the twin towers stood.
This is the memorial where one of the twin towers stood. The WTC site now has fountains at the foundation of both buildings, and the names of those who were killed in the 9/11 attacks. Sobering.
This is the Survival Tree, which was the only thing that survived at Ground Zero.
Wall Street in the Financial District
Wall Street and Broadway
The Bull on Wall Street
Tenement housing (ie, The Projects)
We were really hoping to go to The Tenement Museum, but time did not allow.
The Brooklyn Bridge
Look really closely, and you'll see a single-family house on top of that building.
This is where I want to live.
The Waldorf Astoria
We were going to try for the Shake Shack for dinner, but the line was nuts! Times Square had a crazy amount of traffic, and our tour bus driver said that we had to get off the bus at an alternate site, since whole blocks were barricaded off since the President was in town. He was staying at the hotel about 1/4 block from where I took this picture.
For dinner, we opted to get some New York-style pizza and eat it in our adjoining rooms. We stayed up much too late and played Rook (of which Kevin and I were the winners!)
