We're just back from a few days in New York - the fact is you can't really 'do' New York in just one go and, despite a short trip a few years ago and 4 days last year, there were still things we wanted to see, so we headed for lower Manhattan.
If you discount lots of waiting airports for delayed flights we had a great time ... did everything on our list, walked our socks off, ate good food and took loads of photos of which the following is but a small sample!
9/11 museum and memorial
World Trade Centre
Lower Manhattan skyline from a crowded boat heading out to Liberty Island
Statue of Liberty
Hudson River (looking towards New Jersey)
We had a great time, but it is good to be home again and away from the hordes of tourists and Manhattan's traffic!!
