Day 4

We woke up in the morning literally unable to get out of the little town we had stayed in for the night. When we drove into the hotel the night before it was raining, HARD! Apparently it rained all night long and the Susquehanna River had a major way!

After about an hour of driving around trying to find a way out of the town without running into flooded roads and freeways, we found some locals willing to take us through the back-roads and back to the freeway! We then made our way to NEW YORK CITY!

We drove over the George Washington Bridge and into Manhattan! Growing up the in the Bay Area and being to San Francisco so many times I can't even count, I thought New York City was going to be comprable! NO WAY, JOSE! NYC is ten times as busy and crazy as San Francisco!

We headed to Times Square (where our hotel was) and took in all that it had to offer... Then, we jumped onto a hop-on/hop-off tour bus that took us all over the city. One of our stops was the Empire State Building. We decided not to go to the top mainly because of the cost ($20 per person) but also because the line was super long! We settled for a photo!

After touring part of Manhattan on the bus, we got off and headed to a Broadway show, Mary Poppins. We had scored tickets that afternoon in the third row. It was a neat experience. I can now say I have been to a Broadway show. I probably will never do it again, but it was a good experience!
