East Coast (Northerners): Day 2 – Sightseeing in New York City

Wednesday, 12th July

In the morning we were joined by the East Coast Londoners Group who were about to depart for their trip to Washington DC. Some local saints joined the sisters for breakfast.

We enjoyed their testimonies about the church life in New York and the Boston training centre.
After breakfast everyone met at the Henley house which is where the brothers took hospitality.
Our first time on the New York subway, joined by a local college student brother who took us around New York for the day.

After lining up for a while we finally made it up to the Top of the Rock where we got to see the amazing New York skyline. The day was really clear so it was both humid and hot but it also meant we were able to get a very good view over New York.

After lunch we walked over to Times Square where we had some free time to explore and go shopping.
Later on we walked towards New York Fifth Avenue and some of us walked into Central Park to enjoy some greenery in the midst of skyscrapers.

In the afternoon we got the ferry towards Staten Island and we got to see the Statue of Liberty from the ferry, along with the New York skyline. It was very windy and humid but we still managed to get some great photos.

We took the ferry back from Staten Island this time getting to see the World Trade Centre.

After we got off the ferry we decided to walk by the Financial District of New York to get dinner. We captured some great photos of Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange, including some pictures of the sun starting to set over New York. However, many of us were really tired due to a lack of sleep and a long day of walking.

After dinner we all returned back to our hospitalities to get ready for the next day.

“That which we have seen and heard we report also to you that you also may have fellowship with us, and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.”

-1 John 1:3
