New York, New York: Day 3

We started out Day 3 by touring Grand Central Station after breakfast.    What a magnificent place!  Currently, Grand Central Station has an average of 700,000 people travel through it each day!

Tyler was pretty chill about the whole usual.

I think he might be mocking me...:)


After Grand Central, we traveled to the Bronx to tour Yankee Stadium.  It was fun  telling the tour guide we are World Series Champion Cardinal fans!

Babe Ruth Plaza

Babe Ruth signed baseball.  A ton of baseball history in this place!

After visiting Yankee Stadium, we thought it would be appropriate to have some New York pizza in Brooklyn and then walk across the Brooklyn Bridge toward Manhattan. 

I love how this photo turned out!

The Statue of Liberty in the foggy distance.

A view of the city from the bridge.

Tyler looks thrilled, doesn't he?  He was thinking about napping across the bridge.

Once across our plan was to take the Staten Island Ferry around Liberty and Ellis Islands, but the fog was so thick we didn't think we would be able to see much.

Our next best option was to go to a bar...not my decision but I was along for the ride.  This bar/tavern was pretty cool though. 

It was Fraunces Tavern (they must have changed the family spelling over the years)! 
The building has been standing since 1719.  It is also where George Washington said good-bye to his troops in 1783. 

After several drinks (of water for me), we headed to the Heartland Brewery, the restaurant at the bottom of the Empire State Building, for dinner.  We ate a LOT on this trip!
  It was another action packed day!
