Snow in New York City. Snow is amazing everywhere -- but in NYC it is delightful! Its clean white and silent -- what is usually bustling is calm and serene LOVED NYC just after a major snow storm---when it starts to melt---uggg that is another story.
The 9/11 Teardrop Memorial - I had no clue this poignant memorial existed. It was a gift to America from the country of Russia and is dedicated "To the Struggle Against World Terrorism."
Statue of Liberty: Better to just ride the free Staten Island Ferry (from downtown) to see the view. Going up to statue isn't so exciting. Bypass it to go to the Ellis Island Museum and you can get a great view along the way.
