NYC #2

More of central park.
This was St. Peters church ( I think).  It was kinda weird. People were allowed inside to tour but they were holding mass.  It felt really weird to be in there.  I only took 2 pictures.
Then we were beat and my sister and I went back to the hotel.  Stephanie and her cousin went on there own.
Yes the wax museum of famous people.  I dont know the real name.
The next morning we got up early and went to CBS.
We watched the "Sunday Morning" show.  Most of it is taped and this guy comes in and does all the short segments. It was interesting to see how they piece it all together. Then at the end he had to wait because they had to shorten the end . The regular station show ran over so they fix that by adjusting his time on the air.
After that we went to the Statue of Liberty.  It was a really long wait.  The security to get on the ferry  was worse then the airport. Anything with metal had to be taken off and put thur the machine.  Even then, some people had to patted down.  Not us , thank goodness.

We went to China town next. I dont have any pictures of that.  Then the trip was over. Well, except the the scary ride in the cab to the airport.  The cab driver was a manic.

The wax museum is called Madame Toussaud's, I believe. Cool place! I went there back in '05 or '06.

What a great trip. Stephanie had a huge smile the entire time! I bet she couldn't wait to get home and tell her friends all about it.

I haven't been to NYC, so thanks a lot for giving me a virtual tour here : ) I guess it is a fascinating and vibrant city!

Wow, great photos!!! Sunday Morning is my favorite show, I watch it every Sunday. So that's really cool that you got to see it put together.

I remember the long line to get on the ferry for the Statue of Liberty. We also went to the island where the immigrants arrived..can't remember the name right now...that was really could spend half a day just there.

Looks like you had a wonderful time! Bet you need to sleep for a week now though!
