On Saturday we revisited Central Park in the morning, and later in the afternoon caught a ferry from Manhattan to Staten Island which passes close to the Statue of Liberty. Although the ferry doesn’t stop at the statue itself we got spectacular views of the statue and the city (you can’t go up it anymore for security reasons so we weren’t too worried about going there).
We spent our final day in New York (my birthday :o)) relaxing and walking around Madison Square Park. It was a clear day with blue skies, but was also really cold, so we sat in café’s and enjoyed warm coffees. In the late afternoon we went up the Empire State Building just in time to catch the last few minutes of daylight then see the city light up.
Tomorrow we sadly finish our trip and leave the US, flying via Los Angeles and Auckland, on our way home to Christchurch.
