My mom is here right now.
We've been to 4 of the 5 boroughs thus far. Don't think we're going to make it to the Bronx.
If you want to see the Stature of Liberty, take the Staten Island Ferry.
It's free and you can drink beer. Also you get a good look of Lady Liberty. I know you've seen a million pictures/images on TV, but being in a boat, seeing it up close, is amazing.
I then took mom to Coney Island at the edge of Brooklyn. We rode on the Wonder Wheel, and I kept singing "Wonder Wall" in my head, changing it to "You're my Wonder Wheel."
I didn't have my camera so these pictures from the net will have to do.
Next, onto China Town, so my sister back home could have her very own fake Louis Vuitton. It was pretty easy, and I am now in with the gang. Lemme now if you need some help.
