How were your boys in the 9/11 museum? My kids are 12 and 8 so not sure if too young but I would like to go if able.
They were huge! Definitely not 'small'!
Josh is 16 in October so he was interested as it was the year he was born, dan is 13 and not so much. They both really liked OWO and the pools though.

Pleased you managed the subway ok. I was worried but it was ok. I never thought of one person swiping either. We passed it back and Molly could never make it work. So if I'd just swiped it for her that would have been much easier!
Sometimes I think things looked further on maps than they actually were! But no, you can't do everything!
Thank you for reading

I have walked BB with no-one virtually on it (February and freezing ) and lots (christmas and sunny!) - it is an experience in both cases!

The pizzas look lovely!
It definitely was an experience! The boys wanted to go back and cycle it - no thank you!

They were really tasty

Well done with the subway. Its not as daunting as you would expect. We managed to master it really quickly in our trip in June. Brooklyn bridge is amazing our only regret was we didn't go down to Jane s carousel like you guys did. Pizzas look brill by the way.
9.11 memorial was an experience as it's really emotional. Your pics of Grand central are really good in fact looks like the family selfie was taken from same spot we did

Busy day . Fab amount of sights though , OWO looks amazing, it's so humbling around that area isn't it.
Mmmm, Brooklyn pizza and crazy bridge walking ..just got to be done ! Looks mobbed around the Bull.

Glad you are getting around ok on the subway , it feels familiar quite quickly.

Lol at the breakfast gannets diving in there ... Although we used to get ours and some for the boys so our tray was piled high when we left !

No, it was ok, though I never tried a train change or anything complicated!
Those pizzas were amazing!
9/11 very emotional but so lovely

Walking the bridge is something I really want to do, oh yeah and eat pizza the other side

How was it in Century21? Think my sons are hoping to get some clothes etc in there, is it worth going in? Loving all your reports, weather looks fab.

Bridge and Pizza was great

To be honest we didn't look properly in Century 21 partly as Dan decided quickly there was nothing he wanted and because we were hot and bothered by then!

Busy first day! We didn't go up OWO, one for next time. Great views, although it's a shame you were a bit disappointed with the experience you received.

The 9/11 memorial is amazing, but very surreal. I can't believe the Brooklyn Bridge was so busy, it was really quiet when we walked it ... well done on walking both ways, we got the subway over So jealous that you went to Jane's carousel, it's still on my bucket list as I took a fear of getting lost in Brooklyn and didn't venture away from the bridge Another thing on the "next time" list.

Well done on using the subway... I found the MTA app invaluable, and the subway much easier to get around than I had expected.
