A few relatives from Ireland came in to town to run in the New York City Marathon on November 2nd. They decided to stay around for the week to do a little sightseeing (and a lot of shopping). Since the kids were off from school that Tuesday due to Election Day we took the opportunity to head into the city and visit the Statue of Liberty. The last time I was there I was probably eight years old. I only wish we were able to climb to the crown, but apparently the wait list for that is a few months long. Maybe next time.
