On the island we also saw something which was pretty cool 'The Liberty Bike' which was custom made by Orange County Choppers. It was enclosed in a special glass case there. We had actually watched this episode together at home so to see it in real life was pretty cool.
After a hot chocolate/coffee and some lunch to warm us up we headed to the ferry again.
This time to Ellis Island. Ellis Island was the gateway to immigration in the United States - again the audio tour was fantastic and I think we spent more time in the museum there than we did on Liberty Island. The Museum also had a special Alcatraz exhibit which was good and interesting, especially because we will be heading there in a couple of weeks.
After another ferry home. We took a cold walk (def. coldest day yet) from Battery Park to Wall Street and the financial district. We found this along the way ... CASTLE CLINTON!
And Wall Street
We then hopped back into the subway our hotel ... We dropped our things off and headed in towards Times Square for dinner. Wasn't a late one, though thankfully on the way home we found a pharmacy and picked up some cold and flu tabs so all should get better now! Will make sure I share some exciting scrappy news by the end of today Take care xxx - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
