Road Trip 2010: New York City, New York

Philadelphia, PA to NYC, NY
 Trip distance: 94.1 mi Time: 1 hr 48 mins 

The trip to NYC from Philly was a short hop up the New Jersey Turnpike. It was quite a thrill for all of us to see the Manhattan skyline for the first time.

Our first stop was the hotel in downtown Brooklyn. As we pulled off the freeway, Rach looked at me with the look that said, "is this area safe?" because it didn't look that great but we were pleasantly surprised with the place in the end. The next morning we ventured out to Planet Hollywood in Times Square to pick up our New York passes.

From Times Square we walked a few blocks to Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum.

After the Wax Museum we spent the next 2 hours waiting on line to board the ferry to go see the Statue of Liberty.
It was a nice sunny day in NYC

After the Statue of Liberty we went to the King Tut exhibit (no photography allowed) and then made our way to the NY Skyride and Empire State Building Observation Deck.

A truly magnificent sight
