New York was a lot of fun. We did a lot of walking and lot of shopping. Wednesday evening we arrived and checked into the hotel. If you’re looking for a reasonably priced hotel in Manhattan, I’d suggest looking to the Holiday Inn Express Madison Square Garden. It was clean and the location was great.

Thursday was spent mostly sight-seeing. We took a tour on one of the double-decker buses and went on the harbor tour to see the Statue of Liberty. I took a lot of photos of the billboards so I’ll have to share those in another post.

The first park opened in New York.
The Brooklyn Bridge
The views of the city from the Harbor Tour were amazing.
Lady Liberty
I couldn’t resist the flag with the Statue of Liberty in the background.
After the harbor tour, we got a little lost trying to walk to Chinatown. Eventually we got there, but we probably should have just hopped on the Metro. We did some small shopping amongst the street vendors, but most of the shops were closing by the time we got there.
Then we headed to Little Italy and found a little pizzeria for dinner. After dinner, Kate treated us to cannolis and tiramisu to take back to the hotel for dessert. I wish I could remember the name of the bakery because the sweets were awesome.
