About seven years ago, when I was in 6th grade, my mom and I got tickets to see the Rockettes in New York City with our friends Connie and her daughter, Lacy. When it came time for the trip my mom and I packed up our things and drove three hours to Bennington, Vermont where we would stay with Connie and Lacy at their house. I was so excited both to visit with Lacy and to see the show.
The first night in Vermont we stayed up late talking and catching up with each other’s lives. The next morning we had to get up early in order to catch the bus to New York City where the show was playing at Radio City Music Hall. The bus ride to New York was pretty long, but it was worth it once we arrived in The Big Apple.
Once in the City we had the entire day to do whatever we wanted before the show. One of the first things we did was get Metro Cards so we would be able to ride the Subway all day. Never having been on a Subway before, I thought that it was pretty neat to stand there and hold onto a pole while the train raced on the underground track.
We took advantage of some of the many sightseeing opportunities that NYC has to offer. One of the sights that we went to see was The Statue of Liberty, but the line to ride the ferry out to Ellis Island to see it was so long we decided to just take a few pictures from afar so we wouldn’t have to waste any time waiting. Another sight that we went to see was Ground Zero, where we took more pictures of the rubble left behind after the 9/11 attacks. Finally, we saw the skaters at the ice rink, and watched as they went around and around for a little while before we moved on.
After that, Connie saw a vendor that was selling something she was interested in, and as she was looking other vendors started coming over to us and trying to sell us their products. It was quite a sight to see the other vendors flocking to us like vultures all flocking around a dead animal carcass.
The American Girl store was another stop on...
