both felt well enough to see the sites.
The next day we started our day visiting the lower part of NYC where Battery Park is, The World Trade Center Buildings, The Statue of Liberty, etc. This is a picture of the World Financial Building, right next to Ground Zero. We stood where those visitors are and took the picture you see below of Ground Zero.
This is the "Registration Room" at Ellis Island, where the immigrants were first brought to pass all kinds of mental and physical tests.
Looking North/West from the Empire State Building. At the top center of the picture, the green is Central Park. The lower block of green is Bryant Park, and to the top left is Time Square.
Many of you probably don't know that Chris and I collect pigs with wings. It started because before we were together, Chris collected pigs, and I collected butterflies. We combined the two, and now collect pigs with wings. Amazingly, we see them almost everywhere, and even saw one at a BBQ place called Spanky's. We had to take a picture because it seemed too ironic.
RENT... a show neither of us knew anything about, which is why we chose to see it over all the other shows playing on Broadway. We had been informed to buy the tickets the day of the show because they were cheaper. When we showed up to buy them, we were informed of a "lottery" system they use to give away 34 tickets for $20/ticket vs. the $55 they normally cost. So, each person can put their name in and request up to 2 tickets. We both put our names in and hoped for the best, and guess what, they drew both of our names!! So, we forfeited 2 of the tickets. The other great thing about it was we sat FRONT ROW. It was amazing and the show was great.
