When I packed for New York I assumed they would have the same weather we were having. Hot and Sunny. I packed the sunscreen, the shorts and tank tops. We were busy and I never looked at the weather report. We woke up the rain the last full day of our trip, not soft gentle rain but a down pour!
I was not going to let rain keep us inside, I had a full day planned of sight seeing. The number one pick of the trip for Daughter was to see the Statue of Liberty. I had a plan to ride the Stanten Ferry (its free and offers a good view) to give her the best views. Then the rain got in the way. We put on our ponchos and hurried through the downpour to an open variety store to purchase a couple of umbrellas. The umbrellas kept us relatively dry until we were able to board the train.
Popping out of the station from the five line put us right at the bottom of the financial district. We had to walk three or four blocks to Battery Park. The rain had slowed to more of a mist but with the fog over the water we decided it just did not make sense to ride the ferry.
This was our view from Battery Park…
