Statue of Liberty

It was awesome to be on the pedestal and see the view of NYC

This is the original torch

July 4th weekend we went to New York and saw the Statue of Liberty. It was nice to be able to go there on such a time as Independence Day.

We also visted Manhattan again and went to Brooklyn. We (well, I) wanted original Brooklyn pizza... that was a mistake. Once we arrived we walked about 5 blocks before Ryan decided we needed to turn around because it was so unsafe. Before we got back on the subway I really needed to use the restroom. We didn't recognize many places, except for a KFC. We figured that would be safe. I went into the bathroom and quickly came out (without using it b/c it looked like it had never been cleaned) and at the same time Ryan said, "We need to get out of here!" and then whispered, "Look at the cash register!!" The entire front of the restaurant where you order was shielded by a bullet proof glass, with a slot to pass money through and a speaker to speak to the one taking the order (just like you would see at a bank).
Ryan kept saying all the way to the Subway... "at a KFC! We need to get out of here." Luckily we made it to the Subway unharmed.
When we were on the Subway headed to Brooklyn we asked a girl next to us where a good place was to eat Pizza in Brooklyn. She quickly responded, "I don't know, I am a Manhattan girl and not from Brooklyn." I really didn't know what that meant... but now, I do.

Wow! Sounds like a scary adventure at KFC! I bet that was so cool to see the Statue of Liberty on/around the Fourth.

I'm sure all the thugs and criminals had mercy upon your pregnant belly.

Hey, Ben and I are going out to NYC in a couple of weeks. What do you suggest we see other than the Statue of Liberty?
