We started off on Friday with breakfast at Sara Beth's, an upscale restaurant in Manhattan. I highly recommend the lemon truffle pancakes.
Ashley had to work that day so dad and I were on our own figuring out the metro system and navigating the crowds. We started off at the icon of NYC - the Empire State Building.
We then headed to the Met (Metropolitan Museum of Art.) This is a state-of-the-arts museum that would take the more cultured socialites a day or two to completely browse. We were done in about an hour. (So much to see, so little time.)
And who can visit NYC without seeing the Statue of Liberty. Thanks to the 911 bomber jerks, no one is allowed inside her majesty, and for now, Ellis Island is still closed. But we took a nice tour boat and got pretty darn close. She is a beautiful sight!
Washington Square is another icon, very close to NYU, in the heart of New York City.
Probably the most moving site in the city is the 911 Memorial. Situated on the previous site of the Twin Towers, it houses memorials of the two buildings, with names of each of the victims engraved on the side of the memorial.
And for our anniversary, dad and I attended the ballet Romeo and Juliet at the Metropolitan Opera Theater at the Lincoln Center. Yeah, lucky him. In case anyone is wondering where the Lincoln center is, it is across the street from Julliard School of Music. Yep. We're pretty cultured.
