Day 4 - Trip to NY - New Years Day!

Wednesday, January 6, 2010

Our last full day in NY was New Years Day and made the most of it by staying away from Times Sq. crowds and instead headed Downtown. We hopped on the 6 Downtown and got off at city hall where the Mayor was being inaugurated.

The inauguration made navigating the few blocks around city hall difficult because of street closings and barricades with security check points.

This building was pretty amazing really, it appeared as if the metal scaffolding was holding up the wall up, which it actually very well may have been.

After navigating through an overwhelming amount of police officers we made our way to Ground Zero which was chilling. I took only one photo, an empty skyline.

After Ground Zero we headed to Battery Park which had a great view of the Statue of Liberty and is where you take a ferry across to Ellis Island. Battery Park was in the News this fall when a high ranking government employee approved an Air Force One low-flying photo opportunity with the Statue of Liberty in the background without notifying the city of NY.

We kept walking along the water back towards the Brooklyn Bridge and stopped by the Pier where they had an awesome sail ship / flag ship.

We headed towards Wall St. and as all of us were getting hungry for lunch we decided it was the perfect opportunity to get my NY street vendor hot dog, which took me all of 10 seconds to eat.

Spotted this crazy yellow building near Wall St.

One of the only pieces of art I found DT near Wall St. It made for a cool photo opportunity with Michelle.

Wall St. wasn't much other than another Tiffany's and another barricaded building with some big white pillars, can you tell I was unimpressed?

The rest of the afternoon was spent relaxing and another trip to Times Sq. which was total fail since the Old Fashioned Soda shop was closed.

The days Garmin 310XT tracking. The long straight line are the beginning and end of the metro when the watch regained satellite tracking.
