It took us ten hours to get to New York from North Carolina. In my uncle's car there was a couch so we could stretch out our feet and we made many stops. My uncle drove us to New York City to visit my aunt, have fun, and go see a whole bunch of stuff.
We took about eight trains and it was so hot that my cousin and I wanted to go back home. One of our trains broke down. Then we had to take another train and that one didn't break down.
I went sightseeing. I went on a boat to see the Statue of Liberty. The Statue of Liberty was gigantic and people were climbing up in it on a ladder. But I didn't do that. The Empire State Building was so huge and I saw it from a good view.
We also went to Madison Square Gardens. It was awesome! People were really nice. There were a lot of statues and flowers, but they were dying. Some of them lived. We also went to Macy's to buy some clothes. I got a Rocawear shirt and a Tapout shirt. I bought a present for my mom, a magnet of New York City.
New York City is so awesome. My favorite thing about NYC is the Statue of Liberty. It was my first time seeing it and I got to take lots of pictures.
I like New York City but Raleigh is a little cooler!
