Sunday was supposedly our last day in New York, but Byron invited me to this thing on Governors Island that evening, so my brother and I stayed an extra day.
Sunday morning, we went to hear Mass somewhere close by before lunch. The nice thing about churches in the US is how so many of them are made of stone and have beautiful stained glass windows. The vaulting on the ceiling is usually really pretty. :) Also, they usually make use of organs for the songs, which is also pretty cool.
After heading back to the apartment for a bit, we finally decided to head out for lunch somewhere. While walking, there was this truck with cats up for adoption or something. My siblings are kind of into cats, so we stopped to ogle. There was this one cat in particular that was huge. My brother seemed pretty taken with it.
It didn’t seem very taken with me, however.
We had pizza at this place called Francesco’s, and the pizza was pretty awesome!
After lunch, we all headed back to the apartment. Byron and I left about half an hour later, leaving my sleeping family before they were picked up to go to New Jersey.
Byron and I made our way to Brooklyn to meet up with his friend Steph before going to Governors Island for the music festival thing.
Enjoyed the view from Brooklyn one last time.
Hopped on a ferry to Wall street!
I’m pretty sure these pictures should be familiar to you. After the Wall street ferry, we got on a subsequent ferry to Governors Island.
These really freaky things greeted us upon arriving. Up to now, I still don’t know if I should be amused or really freaked out.
As for the rest of the events that transpired that evening (and for the sake of not being completely redundant), I refer you back to this post.
It was a pretty packed Sunday.
