New York Day 2 (the rest of a very long day)

After stuffing our faces, I convinced the girls that we couldn't come to NY and NOT ride in the subway.  After a little hesitation, I convinced them and we were off on a new adventure!  This was so exciting to me!

Our next stop was to ground zero-I had a to take a pic of this for Devin;)  Anyway, it was the day before Sept 11th so they were setting up for a ceremony the following day.  It was busy, although, I think NY must always be busy.

Where the twin towers stood.
This is something that i did not no, but when the towers were built, they alsobuilt a fire dept right across the street so it would be available for the Twin Towers.  Literally right across the street.  Anyway we talked with a firefighter who was there when the towers went down.  What an amazing thing to see the memorial and talk to someone who was actually there. 

I love mw some good firemen:)

Following our Twin Towers adventure, we strolled over to Sephora where they painted out face with some sort of airbrushinging stuff.  We looked marvelous!!

Now that we were all gussied up we decided a nice stroll over the Brooklyn Bridge would be awesome-it was kind of a long walk though.  I swear by the end of the night we had walked around 8 to 10 miles.

You know walking that much makes you hungry, so more pizza for us at Ignacios.  This was the best pizza ever.  We also went down to the pier and had us some yummy icecream from the Brooklyn Icecream Factory.

Some nice foreigner took our picture on the pier and then we headed back over the bridge and back onto the subway to get to Times square.

I can't forget we stopped at Magnolia Bakery for some cupcakes.  They were good, but I think I have had better.  Its a good thing we walked so much that day, I still went back to the hotel stuffed and exhuasted.  We fit so much into this one day, but I think it was my favorite day of all!!

That is pretty cool that you guys were at Ground Zero right around September 11th. Must be surreal to see that. S
