Despite our trip to NYC feeling like an eternity ago, I am yet to finish sorting out my photos! In order to keep the Yankee dream alive for a little longer, I’ve decided to post sporadically about this fine city until I’ve well and truly exhausted it!
After Sam left us for Ohio, Don and I stepped it up a gear and had a manic day of sightseeing. We went cheesy and old school starting with the Staten Island Ferry…
It’s free and you get the best views of the NYC skyline
And of course the one and only Lady Liberty..
After getting up close and personal we were inspired…
And then we just couldn’t resist the draw of the empire….
It’s a whacking 102 storeys high, standing 443m off the ground! Having just been up the London Shard (308m) the extra 100m is very noticeable!
With no queue!!!! we were up in minutes and boy was it worth it….
We spied some familiar sites…. and luckily my camera has a good zoom! the Flatiron building (a mere 87m) for one…
and Brooklyn Bridge
For someone who has no fear of heights, even I felt a bit woozy so time for one joint snap and then time to head down!
The travel bug has hit me again and I’m for a cheeky weekend in Paris tonight, so have a good one and catch you on the other side!
