Day three

Day three in New York has been snowy and busy. After breakfast at the hotel, we headed out into the snow and made our way to the subway to head for Battery Park. From here we got the ferry to Ellis Island. Our starting voyage was less than successful with our first ferry breaking down before we even left the docking. After a very cold wait in the snow, we finally got underway, travelling to Ellis Island. Here we wandered around the exhibits and warmed ourselves with tea and hot chocolate in the cafe. 
Our next stop was the 9/11 memorial where students walked around the memorial fountains, and learnt about some of the events that took place there at a site that honours those people that lost their lives.
We then took the subway back to Grand Central Station and walked up to Times Square, shopping along the way. 
To round off a busy day we had a meal at Bubba Gump's where we were able to rest our feet and fill our stomachs.
