We were lucky to have our hotel right near Grand Central Terminal (built in 1871), a subway mecca, not to mention is a sight for the eyes…

We rode the Staten Island Ferry – a great view of the city & it’s free!

Went to Little Italy where my sister got a cannoli from an Italian bakery.

Isaac in Little Italy with yummy strawberry gelato.

Saw the Statue of Liberty.

The coolest water taxi that takes Ikea customers from Manhattan to New Jersey to visit Ikea.

Other fun memories:

  • Visiting Times Square
  • Seeing Ground Zero
  • Riding the subway around the city
  • Seeing squirrels in practically all the parks we went to

More to come…
