CityScapes

Monday was awesome. It was my first day off in three days, and I spent a relaxing and stress-free day back in New York City.

My day began with a ride from Newark to the World Trade Center on the PATH. This is a huge money-saving tip for people who live near Newark, NJ. Instead of paying my usual $10 for a train ticket from my town to NYC, it only costs $1.75 to get from Newark to NYC Smile

Most of my time was spent in Lower Manhattan, which is the most confusing part of the city … I got lost so many times, but it was so worth it to see so many new areas of the city.

So here’s my day in pictures. Enjoy NYC through my eyes!

Liv,
so glad I just found your site! That falafel looks delicious and now I want some for lunch. And that kitchen store!!!! I would spend hours there. I always wanted to live in NYC - love that place, but life took a different path, but a great one.
Enjoy your day!
