Went on a school trip to Ellis Island today. I was hesitant to go because I'm not fond of school trips. School tends to kill all things fun. I use to love museums until we had trips to museums where we were given assignments. But I have to admit today was quite fun. Above are photos of The Statue of Liberty and Battery Park. I've been to Ellis Island and The Statue of Liberty before but I never appreciated it. When you live in New York, you tend to take all the things it has to offer for granted because it's just always there. But trips like these makes me realize how much I LOVE NY.
