New York

I normally go to Miami or LA when I holiday in the States, but having just been to New York I have to say it was one of my best holidays ever!

Here's a pic taken from the viewing platform on the Empire State Building.

That was located in Battery Park, which is where you get the ferry over to the Staue of Liberty.

Here's a pic from the ferry.

And this is Ellis Island, which is where the Imigrants used to be processed upon their arrival.

Don't panic Ben, it's not used anymore!

what I thought was most amazing about the Empire building is that it was built in 15 months, that's a couple of months less than it took you to rig your boat
