The second day in NYC was also quite busy. First thing in the morning, we went to meet Hiro, Naoko's friend living in New York, and a nice guy! We met near the World Trade Center, so we decided to go to visit Ground Zero first thing in the day. After a 5-10 minute walk, we arrived there/ The place looks like a huge construction site and Ground Zero is just full of rubble.
After visiting such a sad place, we headed to the southernmost part of Manhattan to take a ferry to Staten Island. Hiro had told us that was the best way of watching the Statue of Liberty for free ;-) And he was right!! The ferry passed really near the statue and was for free!
The trip back was also nice as we could see all the skyscrapers in Manhattan in the horizon. It was a nice view!
Once back in Manhattan, we went to Wall Street and passed by the Stock Exchange Market.
Once there, we had to say "matane" to Hiro, as he had to go to work in his Japanese restaurant. Naoko gave some cool Japanese presents to him and after that, Naochan and I went to Chinatown for lunch.
