So the first time I visited New York, we didn't have time to visit all the touristy sites. This time around we had enough time to fit everything in. My cousin played tour guide and took us everywhere. One of the days we went to ground zero to see the World Trade Memorial. It definitely wasn't a lighthearted experience. Seeing the black inverted fountains where the towers used to be was really depressing and eery.
After visiting the memorial we decided to get some new york pizza. Duh. I asked some officers that looked like they belonged in Law and Order where the best place to get pizza was. They said Lombardi's. We didn't have time to stop by Lombardi's on our way to Staten Island so we just ate some whatever pizza. It wasn't bad.
We made it just in time to catch the Staten Island ferry to take a look at the statue of Liberty!
