We visited Freedom Tower, whose top floors weren't even visible through the clouds. (P.S. Though still under construction, it is now the tallest building in New York).
The Strand, where I wanted to buy every single book in sight.
my favorite places.
We took a ferry out to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island...but more on that later.
We took a ride on The Ride, where we all enthusiastically sang "New York, New York," though Mom was perhaps the most enthusiastic of all.
We also watched no less than 5 episodes of Downton Abbey, ate ice cream every night, and somehow damaged almost every fixture in our bathroom. All in all, a pretty darn great visit. Thanks, Mom and Dad, for coming out to see us!
