the haunting high of the day.
sadly, this is incredibly high for what the news said it felt like (12 degrees)
we tried to go into the m&m and the hershey factory (just for some minutes of warm...they were sooo crowded we could barely move! guess people like them some chocolates during the holidays)
i had hoped there would be something more to see from the world trade centers. i was there with school just a couple months after it happened. i wanted to see a memorial or new buildings or something. well, the new buildings were started, but nothing to see and the night shot was just not clear. we did pass this cross though, which was said to be found in the remnants. they have kept it all these years and will re-locate it to the new buildings when construction is finished!
we got ourselves a treat with dinner...everything cost more in NYC!
all i have to say is its a good thing we shared it-> it cost $9.50/slice!!! man, olive garden is rolling in the monies up there! (its also good i didn't know the cost first, b/c i def wouldn't have been able to eat it!)
this was my attempt at an artistic shot...i wanted to contrast the empire state building (big building on left) and the statue of liberty (small on right)
this was an amazing painting we found in the rock. it says,
"mans ultimate destiny depends not on whether he can learn new lessons or make new discoveries and conquests, but on his acceptance of the lesson taught him close upon two thousand years ago"
