Where I stayed
Courtyard by Marriott
Went to breakfast for Father's Day at the hotel cafe for all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet with cooked to order omlettes. Just as we sat down (luckily on the 12th floor), it started to drizzle outside! It cleared up quickly, but it was a hot and humid day.
We barely made it to 1:00 mass at the Cathedral of St. Patrick. They have a mass every 1/2 hour! Fastest mass I've ever been to! It was very ornate, amazing detail - the ceilings were so tall!!
We took a cab to the pier and enjoyed a 75 minute cruise around the harbor. Got to see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the construction of where the Twin Towers once stood
We squished into another cab (four wide in the back seat - seatbelts optional!) and headed back to the hotel for a change of clothes. Found an Irish pub just a couple blocks away, Pig n' Whistle. Great food! Ben got his grilled cheese, the girls had steak & fries, I had a shrimp cobb and Phil had shepard's pie with his Guiness.
We are gettting to bed early tonight. Have to catch a limo to New Jersey at 6:45. We are going to take a ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. You have to stand in line early to get tickets at 8:30.
