Day 41 - New York, New York, USA

Day 41 – 19th July 2005 -5:00 GMT

Had Breakfast at the hostel then caught the subway down to 34th, we alked to the Empire State Building and joined the queue for the top. We queued for about an hour before we got to the top and then spent 45 minutes up there admiring the view and taking photo’s. Unfortunately due to the smog the visibuilty was only a mile or so.

We then had a walk around Macy’s on 7th Avenue which is the world’s largest store, then got back on the subway up to Washington Square and went to Greenwich Village and got a bite to eat. Then back on the subway again and we went up to Columbus where we met a friend of ours Nancy Horowitz who Jill and I had met the previous November in Paris. Nancy was a perfect guide and told us all about the areas of central park that we had walked through including the sheeps meadow,
