New York and Lady Liberty

I was in New York this past weekend for an office function.  I wasn't really excited about it (it was feeling a little too much like work), but I ended up having a really good time.  The dinner was really nice and we had fun dancing to the band.

This is the view from our table at dinner.  The tall, well lit building on the left is One World Trade Center (still under construction).

On Saturday, we had reservations to go to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island.  I found the tours well worth it.  The only thing is to be really careful when making your reservations.  It was very easy to pick the wrong date ..  I accidentally selected the wrong date and spent two days agonizing over the thought of having to pay twice.  It worked out well (I only paid once) and Saturday was gorgeous. We were on the first boat (ferry) from Manhattan to Liberty Island, which I highly recommend. Spent a couple of hours wandering around and were finished by lunch time.

More pictures tomorrow.  I'm too tired to write more tonight.
