Where I stayed
I did a Jr. Park Ranger program which involved learning about the statue and answering a lot of questions. This was like doing homework ! The statue is a gift from France to America as a symbol of freedom. I had to turn in my work to a Park Ranger who made me take an oath and then gave me a badge. I got an ice cream as a reward.
Then we took another ferry to Ellis Island. This is where immigrants used to enter the USA. Now, most immigrants enter through California
Afterwards we went back to New York and visited Ground Zero. Over 2 years, they have built supporting piers and a few levels. It is still a sad place.
For dinner, we took the subway to a Greek restaurant and had some yummy food. I read my book, Butterfly Lion, by Michael Morpurgo, which is about a white lion and a boy.
