We headed back into New York City for the second day. Today we decided to take the train right from Croton, NY. The train station is just outside the campground and it only cost us $36.00 round trip for the family. We arrived right in Grand Central Station and went up a floor to catch the subway to the South Ferry station. There we caught the Staten Island Ferry (free!) and rode it across to Staten Island, mainly for the excellent view that it provides of the Statue of Liberty. From what we heard the lines and wait times for the statue were going to pretty much take up a whole day, and we just felt that we didn't have the time (maybe next visit!). After that we came back to Manhattan and walked up to the Financial district. We toured the Trinity Church which is an Anglican church dating from 1698. The current building was started in 1846 and is quite beautiful. It stands at the foot(?) of Wall Street (see the Bull below)! We went from there to Ground Zero and saw the progress (or lack of it) they are making on the new World Trade Center buildings. A very sad sight but amazing that so many buildings right next to the site are completely untouched. We walked over to the Winter Garden Atrium and met my (Bruce's) uncle Jon Johnson for a late afternoon snack. He lives in NYC and works as an Actor/ Theater mgr. It was really great to get to talk to him for awhile as I hadn't seen him for a few years. There was a very nice sun setting as we made our way back to the Subway to hitch a ride back up to Grand Central. At GCT we took a little time to have dinner as there was a smörgåsbord of restaurants, Suzanne and I had a good Indian meal. Suzanne did a little shopping at a grocery that was right in the station as well, and found some spices that she hadn't been able to find anywhere else. We took the train back without a hitch, and all in all it was a good day!
