I am going to split day 2 up into two parts. Our second day in New York was probably one of the busiest. We got up early Thursday morning, got coffee, then headed to Wall Street and to see the Statue of Liberty. Here are some of the pictures from the day….
(Note: I am still recovering from all the walking we did and getting back home from vacation. I know we wore poor Summer out on this trip! ha ha! We are all plum tuckered out! I think I did 5 loads of laundry when we got home. It sure was good to see my Connor boy though and next time hopefully he can come too and meet the B’s future kiddos 🙂
Wall Street was actually a lot smaller than we both had imagined. It’s a very cute cobblestone street full of people hustling and bustling about. I imagined a four lane freeway or something like that, but in reality it was a narrow, quaint little street that just happens to be a financial capital in the world. Lots of $$$ on this street and major businesses stood side by side.

I’m not sure how I got the back end here….everyone was blocking the front!

Terence tried a hot dog and said it was “okay”. I had a pizza filled pretzel and it was pretty good!

It was COLD on the top of that ferry ya’ll!
It was a great day and we had a great time exploring the Statue of Liberty and taking lots of pictures!
On the way back to the city….
