Day 13: Ferries

We had an earlier start this morning than recent days to make the most of our last full day in New York. Pauly and I went out to Bakeri to buy tasty stuff for breakfast. We had orange brioche and banana bread.

We took a trip on the East River Ferry that goes under the Williamsburg Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge. It goes really fast!

We took the ferry to Pier 11 and then walked along to the Staten Island Ferry terminal. We went over on the ferry and came straight back again! The views of Manhattan are great and you go quite near to the Statue of Liberty.

Our next stop was the High Line. We walked it last year, but on the 21 September (the day before we went) they opened a whole new section! It was really nice to walk along it again and see the new area.

We came off the High Line on 34th Street and kept walking. We saw the Empire State Building and Macy’s.

We had lunch at a Japanese restaurant as Pauly fancied sushi. I had some of Zoë’s tempura vegetables and Pauly’s sushi!

The final activity of our last full day in New York was another trip to the Yankees. We got there quite early and had time to see Monument Park.

The game was quite exciting, but it felt like everyone was just there to see Derek Jeter, which was very exciting!
