Having lived in New Jersey for more than ten years, I've been to New York many times. In April, it was my first time going with my relatives, some came as far as from Trinidad and Tobago for the funeral of my grandfather, Oscar Rivers. It was a night to remember; the whole gang of us trudging down towards the Path Train into the wee hours of the morning and a quick stop to the 9/11 Memorial.
On this trip however, there was a make-shift itinerary with much to do as we went for CityPasses to six attractions. We were ready to hit the ground running, landing in New York around 4 pm on July 1st., except they wouldn't land the plane.
