I was terribly excited to see the Statue of Liberty so as we drove closer to Liberty State Park in New Jersey and I could start to see her, I was as giddy as a kid on Christmas Morning! From the park we could see the Twin Towers which were still standing at that time. We then took a ferry to Liberty Island, passing Ellis Island en route. It was just as cool as I thought it'd be : )
This picture helps to demonstrate another thing that Etta was surprised about in the 1700's. Normally she would see what is in this picture, light pollution. When traveling back in time she finds she can see stars.
