Welcome to New York! – by Mara


Welcome to New York!!!!



For my birthday I wanted to go to New York City so we drove up on Friday and stayed till Sunday. It was a five hour drive each way but it was worth the drive!


One of the things I wanted to do in New York City, was go up the Empire State Building.  Why I wanted to go up the Empire State Building is because I read the Percy Jackson series and the Empire State Building is featured in the books.  Also, I wanted to face my fear of heights.  So on Saturday morning, we ate breakfast and then walked to it.  I was nervous at first but faced my fear and went the whole way up to the 102nd floor!  It had a breathtaking view!  I loved it!

After that, we stopped to get lunch and then walked to Mood.  Mood is a fabric store that they use in Project Runway.  It was way bigger than I expected and has a crazy amount of fabrics and other materials.

After all of this, we rested at the hotel and went down to the tip of Manhattan to see the Statue of Liberty.   After that, we went to Little Italy and got some of the best cannolis that I’ve ever had.

The next day, we went to Central Park and my brother and I were climbing all over the rocks there.  Then we went to Dylan’s Candy Bar.  It had a lot of selections.  Yum!

Then we went to Max Brenner’s for lunch and chocolate.  Beckett and I split this crazy sundae and mom and dad split this chocolate fondue trio.  It was gooooood.

After all of this, we went back to the hotel, packed up and drove back home.
