Day 2 in New York. Took the Statue Cruises to Liberty and Ellis Islands. The sky was threatening to pour the entire day. Thankfully, it held at being cloudy and chilly until after the Charging Bull. I remember being stuck at a GNC shop waiting for the storm to pass. Ended the day with ice cream at the Brooklyn Bridge Park, DUMBO area.
I felt it was a more relaxing day spent away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.

Ended up at T.G.I.Friday’s. It was pouring outside at this time.
