Statue of Empire
(It’s a joke we’ve had going today!)
Today, I’m in New York. I went to the Empire State Building. At the Empire State building I could see ALL of New York! It was really cool – I was on the 86th floor and that’s high! I figured out where Percy Jackson found the elevator, and that’s pretty cool.
We went to Times Square and I had a king-size Kit Kat at a chocolate store and let me tell you, those are huge, geez! I thought that Times Square was really cool and I really really, really like their stuff they have there. They have a Toys “R” Us there, and a Disney store, and there were so many characters walking around… Ironman and Hello Kitty, Dora the Explorer, Wolverine, Mickey, Donald Duck and even a cowboy without any pants or a shirt – just his underwear – singing songs on the guitar in the middle of the street.
I also got to ride the subway. We got metro cards which are like unlimited ride cards. They just use them by swiping them through the gates and you enter through to the trains. Once you’re at the trains you can get from place to place to place to place and its really fast! And, let me tell you don’t do the taxis because they get backed up by all the cars on the streets, and they end up charging you like 100 bucks, and I don’t think thats ok! Oh, and one more thing, if you’re really, really, really want to go to the subways get some mints to suck on …you’ll need them because it smells!
I went to FAO Schwartz yesterday – it’s a huge toy store! Let me tell you, there’s no stores that are as big as this one! I got a bean bag called a myachi, and have to work to become a Jedi! You can’t catch it with your palm, and I’m on the first level of training. Next time I go to FAO Swartz, I am going to do some more lessons and see if I can do the Jedi catch. Its a really cool move where you use the back of your hands to hold onto the mayachi, and make it stay for little bit, upside down, then tilts it to the side and the beanbag flies to the other side. It’s amazing!
