The Bonus City

In the spirit of looking on the bright side, our travel mis-adventures have netted us a bonus city in our itinerary.   Since we got stuck in New York for a whole day, we decided to make the best of it and show the kids the city.

We took a car from our hotel and lucked into a very nice driver.  He offered to take us by a few sights on the way into midtown.  We were headed for the Empire State Building because it would be an icon the kids would recognize and allow them to see the whole city from above.  The driver offered to take us by the Brooklyn bridge, Ground Zero and a viewing spot for the Statue of Liberty on our way for just whatever tip we wished to leave him.  We took him up on it and had a nice little tour before going to the top of the Empire State Building.

Below is a video rendition of our day
