NYC: Day Two

After breakfast (pastries), we walked over to ground zero just to see how things have changed since November 2009. There are a couple of buildings that have sprung up. Here are a couple of photos so you can see the difference.

We took the subway up to the street festival on Avenue of the Americas. It wasn't that cool. There was a lot of fair food, and the same stuff (Chinese imports) for sale on every block. I got something from a Turkish food stand for lunch. It was really tasty. Kind of like a Turkish burrito. I found a booth with printed T shirts that I really liked, but I decided to save my money for boots. Ross liked the sculptures at one of the booths. See photos:
We went back and Ross bought the Wall-E sculpture. I bought a 5 dollar scarf at the booth next door.
