Day two was probably the busiest day of the lot, we woke up bright and early and headed down the island using the subway. We managed to hop on a free ferry which went past Staten Island so we could get a glimpse of the Statue of Liberty. Then we walked up to Ground Zero, a really surreal and chilling moment. It's awful to think of that horrible day, but it really is such a beautiful way to commemorate all those lost. I took the image below because my dad, who had visited and gone up the twin towers many years ago, told me you could once look up this gap and see the towers, where now there is a gap.
We finished day two eating out at Ellens Stardust Diner - a definite must visit if you ever go to NY. It's a completely different dining experience where you are sung to by the waitors and waitresses, all working there while they wait to try and make it on Broadway. It was so much fun!
