Empire State Building
Today was perfect. We had the most lovely weather for a cruise around the harbour in New York. As you can see we got right up close to Liberty herself.

We also stopped to take a moment at ground zero where the two towers once stood. The place had a very strange and quiet feel to it. Jack was asleep in his pram so we also stopped at a cafe up the street to have a quiet cuppa. Even the cafes around the streets there had a 'ghostly' feel to them. I could imagine the chaos and terror that was felt back in 2001. I wonder if this area will ever truly recover from the devastation?

We went shopping at Macy's which is the largest department store in the world and it is HUGE. Jack met a lovely little 12mth old girl from England (Shanti) and we had a nice chat with them. Stuart says that she looks like a cabbage patch doll :)

After all of this we had dinner at Planet Hollywood where many famous people have dined, including Jack Duncan! Today after the boys have their morning nap we are heading to Central Park and then to the 2 storey Teddy Bear factory on 5th Ave. to pick up Jack's souvenir.

Back to Ashburn this afternoon.
