NEW YORK CITY
We braved the crowds and kids and took the ferry trip out to Ellis Island and the Statute of Liberty. Always wanted to do it. It was worth the visit to think about how our relatives got into he U.S. We know John’s Nanna and Grandmother came through Ellis Island when Nanna was only 3 years old. And Betty’s Dad came over at age 15 in 1928 on the “Berengaria” with 4,593 other passengers.
HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY
Our RV park was on the NJ side of the Hudson River, with a great view of the Statute of Liberty and the NY skyline- doing a full moon. Yes, it wasn’t much more than a parking lot… but in a great location!
Who would think that Hoboken, New Jersey would be a fun place? Lots of funky old buildings, shops, restaurants, fabulous market… and transportation into NYC. We tried to take a ferry, but it wasn’t running to Midtown, so we managed to figure out how to take the Path train, through the Holland Tunnel, into the city. Betty was excited that we got off about two blocks from Macy’s- and they were having a big sale!
