Cameras and medicines are allowed to take inside the statue. Remaining backpack, we have to keep in the lockers provided. After exploring the statue, you can get into Ellis Island with ferry ride where you can see the museum (I didn’t got time to go there).

9/11 Memorial and Museum

I never felt sad to visit any place but this one made me cry. This is a museum made in the memory of September 11 attacks and World Trade Center bombing. I went through the memorial pool where the names of the deceased people in both attacks are written.

Lets take a moment to pray for all of them….

Times Square

A crowd of people, Lots of shining advertisement boards…. Does it make you happy??? Before exploring the Times Square, I was thinking like this…. But the vibe that we get there is amazing. Once you reach home, you will feel so happy that you made it. It gives a positive energy which we need always in our life.
