Being good tourists, my mom and my sister wanted to take the double decker sightseeing bus. At first I was skeptical, not only because it is cheesy but because it was really cold and only some of the buses had a covered top! But I agreed and it really was pretty fun. We took the bus from Times Square down to lower Manhattan to see Ground Zero etc. We then took a boat out to see the Statue of Liberty and to see Manhattan from the water. It was chilly but beautiful!
I enjoyed seeing the Staten Island Ferry, it looks so nice and old against the modern buildings:
A catamaran! Sailing that day (it was about 35 F) must have been chilly...
