New York City

We went to New York City during Ben's Spring Break. We stayed at West 33rd Street and as you can tell, the weather was beautiful. We saw the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Museum of Natural History, Central Park and caught The Lion King on Broadway as well as attended Mass at St. Patrick's Cathedral.

We met up with a childhood friend who gave us a great walking tour of the city and we rode the subway a lot as well as a couple taxi rides. Those guys are crazy but good. Great education and trip for all of us.

We just got a taste of this great city. We will be back again soon!

For a slideshow, just click on any photograph. Enjoy! I took a ton of cell phone photos and I will get these up soon.
