Liberty Island {New York Travelogue}

May 25, 2015 // Day 2

Despite a very long first day in New York, we surprisingly woke up early the next morning- much ready to see more of the city. We took the downtown train to board the Statue Cruises Ferry and visit Liberty Island. The weather that morning was gorgeous- blue skies and all.

It was actually Memorial Day so there were many visitors and tourists but it wasn’t that crowded although I imagined an afternoon turn out would be quite different. I’m really glad we got to see Lady Liberty and I got to take some great portraits of the statue!

    What a beautiful day to go and visit! I went with my sister this year, and we went during a particularly gloomy day, which was unfortunate. It was still really fun to do though! I’m glad you went when it wasn’t too crowded 🙂

    Wow, all the photos look amazing. The sky is so blue! Haha. The boat ride must have been so cool (I love boat rides!).
