My 3-Day Trip to New York : Day-2

DAY-2

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).

Ellis Island


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 ย 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.

Flatiron Building

Times Square-night tour

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