If there is one thing you must do in this city ride the subway. It’s a scary place but it can lead to endless wonder.
I wanted to go to Central Park and pop into Sarabeth’s, take a photo and ask my best-friend if she would like to have coffee ( long story). I got on a train and somehow ended up at the World Trade Center. Needless to say my subway navigation is a little rusty. But when in Rome. So I thought go see the 9/11 memorial, well that closes like at 5 or something.
Next stop adventure town.
So I decided to get on the Staten Island ferry to watch the sunset over the city and what a great choice that turned out to be. I love the Staten Island ferry, for one it is free and another it is a wonderful 20mins cruise that take you right in front of Liberty Island, you can see the statue and then back to the city. You can see the city’s skyline at its best and they way the sun kisses the horizon at sunset will take your breath away.
What does one do after watching a great sunset? Easy Times Square. Lights, tourist shops and a chai latte at Starbuck because after all that walking you will need something.
