The last weekend in July the family and I went to New York City to support Amazing Guy's run in the half marathon. The day before the race we played tourists which included a short ferry ride around the East River to see the latest public art installation. The New York City Waterfalls are four large metal towers which spew out water.
There is one under the Brooklyn Bridge.
By Pier 35 near Rutgers Street.
By the Brooklyn Piers.
By Governors Island.
It was a lovely little tour, especially after we nearly missed it due to many subway delays. Nothing like dragging three kids down multiple blocks of Fulton Street, which is completely torn up due to construction. But we made it and split up because there was no way little lady was leaving the air conditioning. And there was no way I was going to try and take photos through dirty windows.
Amazing Guy graciously sat inside with little lady and one big man while I sat outside in the back with the other big man. I rarely get time with only one son so it was another treat on top of a lovely little tour.
At one point he turned to the older women next to us and on his own said "We're from Boston." He then talked to them about our visit, why we are there, what we had done and asked them questions about their own visit. I was speechless and floored as my son showed conversational skills and social grace I didn't know he had.
The cherry on top of the treat on top of a lovely little tour.
