East Coast Adventure Part 5

New York City!

We rode over on the ferry.

We saw the Statue of Liberty.

And Ellis Island, where our great-grandpa landed.

Then we walked around in New York City.

I bought a hat.

Trinity Church (National Treasure!)

 John Hancock is buried here in this tiny graveyard nestled between skyscrapers at the corner of Broadway and Wall Street.

Here is part of the enormous 9/11 memorial.

The next day we went to Plimoth Plantation.  We saw real live Indians.  This stoic canoe-making Apache was not wearing pants!

All the people who work in the Indian village are actual Indians.  (So they won't take me.)

The English Village.

 The people in the village are role-players.  Each one is playing a real person who lived in the settlement.  They talk differently and they don't know about anything after the 17th century.  It was a little awkward talking to them, but fun too.  I think that would be a really fun job.

This shingle-maker was educating the group of elementary school kids on the proper terms of respect.

We also got to see the Mayflower II.  It was hard to believe that all those people crossed the ocean on that tiny ship.
