DAY-2

 

Click here to check my 1st day in New York City

BATTERY PARK,STATUE OF LIBERTY & ELLIS ISLAND:

My day-2 in New York was super exciting because i was starting my day by visiting Battery park to see The Lady liberty.For this i had to change 2 metros (7)&(5).I booked my ticket on statuecruises.com a month before so that i can get access to the Crown.Ticket includes a ferry ride to the statue of liberty & Ellis Island. It was an amazing experience & Everyone should visit this at least once in lifetime(Click here for detailed information on statue of liberty).

CHARGING BULL:
From battery park we went to see the Charging Bull which symbolically represents the financial market strength of New York.This is a very busy area and if you want to click pictures you should pop in quickly,smile & get out.For me It’s something you just do once in your life to say you’ve seen or done it.If you want to take pictures here without a time limit,i would recommend going early in the morning to avoid crowd.

11 WALL STREET:
From there we walked through wall street to see the main street which is 11 wall street.Wall street is a dream working place for many people.You can just feel the money swirling around your head around here.It is a great place to sit and watch the beautiful architecture and history around you.I kept staring at the huge George Washington statue which was incredibly cool, later i got to know it was the actual place where he stood & took the oath for president of united state.

9/11 TRIBUTE CENTER:
As the name itself say it’s a tribute center,which has the guided tour led by the volunteers- survivors, family members,rescue workers who share their 9/11 experience with you.The ticket for admission is 15$ per adult,but i used my Explorer pass to get admission which was worth the visit I haven’t been this moved by any site i have visited while travelling.The guides will share their own real stories of 9/11 tragedy which will make you mesmerized and of course sadden.There’s a wall where the pictures of those who lost their lives are posted. You will also get to see the exact place where the twin towers were actually built,now that place has huge pools which is a tribute to the one who lost their lives during the 9/11 tragedy.For me it is a must visit place for everyone who visit NYC.

ONE WORLD TRADE CENTER:
From there we headed to world trade center which was right in the opposite street of Β 9/11 tribute center.The general admission ticket was 34$ but i used my explorer pass to get the admission(click here for detailed information on world trade center).

HOP ON/OFF BUS TOUR:

From one world trade center we took a hop on/off bus as we were tired and want to just relax.For around 60$/person you get uptown tour,downtown tour,Brooklyn tour and night tour for 2days. I used my Explorer pass to get into a uptown tour bus,and then the night tour bus.As soon as i got in they gave me headsets for audio tour as they have several knowledgeable live tour guides.I got to see many uptown places through this tour.You can hop in/off where ever you want .There are several stops where you can catch a bus for every 15 minutes.Overall it was a good experience. The only thing which irritating us was the traffic, because of the traffic we got stuck at many places.

After the uptown tour and night tour we got down at grand terminal and went back to Hotel by taking [7] metro.

    1. Yes I did…I have three blogs on NYC , Day-1,Day-2 and Day-3 check them out, you’ll have a clear sheet on how and what to see in NYC πŸ™‚ I also have a blog on 20 free things to see/do in NYC πŸ™‚

  1. I am so incredibly jealous of you and your travels right now! I am yearning to be in New York so badly. The last time I went was last summer, and that seems like ages ago! I hope you have the best time!

  2. I saw Elis Island but the Lady Liberty was closed for renovations when I went. Elis Island was so interesting to learn about.

  3. I wanted to experience the bus tour when I get there at NYC. Of course the twin tower will be my first stop, I like the idea that it will be guided by the survivors and family members which can share their 9/11 experience.

  4. I love NYC! I was there years ago and hope to go back with my daughter one day. I just hope I don’t get lost. I’m horrible with direction. I’d probably just stay on that bus.

  5. It looks like you filled your day with all the important sights! Good to know that you had a great time touring the city as well.

  6. You saw a lot of what I saw when I was there! I haven’t visited in a few years now, would love to go back again!

  7. I love New York – been there several times and never have time to see all that I want to see. Looks like you were able to capture so much fun.

  8. I have only seen the Statue of Liberty a couple of times, from afar. I would like to see her up close and personal. It’s scary and sad to see the silverware from 9/11. I cannot wait to return to NYC to take touristy pictures…I never really had a good camera to do that whenever I went.

  9. New York is one of the places I would love to visit with my boys. Your photos make me want to haul them to the next plane, if only I could. It sure will be a trip all of us will enjoy, especially that my son really loves to see Lady Liberty. In the meantime, I will admire these attractions through the NYC postcards I recently got!

  10. New York is in my list of places to visit.I am sure you haven’t missed the Halal Guys ,heard a lot about them. I am a Foodie. πŸ™‚
