In the summer of 2013, I was able to spend time with my family in New York. My favorite parts of the whole trip were walking around New York City, and getting to be up close with the Statue of Liberty. While roaming through the streets I was able to capture pictures of the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower. Below are the photos I took of these popular skyscrapers.
After strolling through the city, we were excited to buy tickets to see the Statue of Liberty. Boating out to the island where the famous monument was located, you were able to witness an amazing view of the city behind us. Below is a picture I took of the city once we started heading toward the Statue of Liberty by boat.
Once we reached the island we were not only able to take pictures of the statue, but we were able to go up the stairs of the Statue of Liberty to get a better look. The island also had a museum and a shop to get numerous souvenirs. Below is a picture of me in front of the Statue of Liberty.
New York and New York City are definitely places I believe everyone should visit at least once in their life. I cannot wait till December when I will be flying out to New York once again to see my family and make new memories.
