One place that I have always wanted to go is New York City and we were able to fit it in while on vacation in the Philadelphia area. We were just there for the day, but it gave us a good taste of what the city is like and we are looking forward to going back and spending more time in the future! Unfortunately it was cold and rainy while we were there. We started off by going to the 9/11 Memorial. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a weird feeling being there and a little scary considering all the security we had to go through to even get to it.
Not sure why it chose that pic as the one to show, it's not that great!
