NYC Day 4 Let’s Explore!

by sara on March 20, 2011

After brebrunch and brunch, we decided to walk all over town again and see where our little tenny runners could take us.  We passed by a bunch of famous NY joints including Katz’s!

We also passed a store where you could get turkish apricots for $6.99/lb!  Pricey dried fruit stores are the new black.

Somehow without trying we made it to the World Trade Center site.  You could watch 100 shows on the coverage of what happened that day but to actually be there and imagine the events that unfolded and the panic that resulted was truly mind blowing.  We didn’t want to be sad pandas so we kept walking.

We made our way to the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street!  It was pretty historic yet boring – there wasn’t any food.

Here’s a shot looking up from Wall Street.  I’m practically the best photographer you’ve ever met, I know.

A different view of the NYSE.  I wish I had a twizzler or something to show you too.

We left the blah financial district and made our way to the Brooklyn Bridge so we could take some more pictures.  First we stopped and caught some ferries taking people from Manhattan to Brooklyn.  Can you imagine having to take a ferry, drive or walk/bike across a bridge every day to go to work?  At least they get good bagels.

Hey Brooklyn!  See you soon!  Manhattan, BRB.

We made it!  Here is a view of Brooklyn from the bridge.  It was awesome.  I highly recommend this if you want some cool pics or you like being awesome.  A bunch of bicycle commuters and runners passed us and it made me really want to join them.  A walk was fun too though.

Have a nice day.

Since it was a little over a mile each way, it started to get dark on us on the way back.  The looming darkness scared me.  Not because I was afraid my pictures wouldn’t turn out but because I wasn’t sure where we were going to eat next.

Here we are coming back into Manhattan after walking to Brooklyn and back.  We’re kind of a big deal.  Like the thousands of other tourists that did it that day.

I took a picture of Pier 17 because I figured it was famous.  Is it famous?  If not, cool pic!

Once we got back into Manhattan it was about 6:30pm and we had been walking since about 10:30am minus the two breakfast stops.  Needless to say, I needed Dessert Truck and I needed it PROMPTLY.  (please note: the last thing I needed was Dessert Truck)
