When we woke up on our fourth and final day in the Big Apple, we were all too aware that we only had a few more hours to enjoy this magnificent metropolis. So, we decided we’d have to make the most of them.
Day Three in New York City: Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, 9/11 Memorial and the Empire State Building
By our third day in New York, normal service had well and truly resumed following the blizzard. So, we took the tourist boat to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. You are able to get off the boat at Liberty Island, but we chose to see the statue from the boat.
On our second day, we arose bright and early to seize the day. The snow was beginning to melt by now, so most of the city was back on the go. So, we grabbed a bagel for breakfast and headed to St Patrick’s Cathedral.
“All non-emergency vehicles must be off all NYC roads by 5 pm until further notice.” Looking around the practically deserted Met, it was clear to see the automated emergency alert caused by Storm Jonah had sent a panic around the building.
