Our 4th Of July Adventure To Check Out Fireworks In Manhattan!!

South Street Seaport, Manhattan (NYC)

Hello Everyone!

As I mentioned in the previous post, I rented a hotel room down in lower Manhattan near Batter Park. The hotel is called, “Club Quarters World Trade Center” and is the building just south of the Twin Towers memorial grounds and the Freedom Tower. We took the train and subway from Queens and came down to check out the festivities on Sunday afternoon. We walked around South Street Seaport to check out the night life. We found an Italian restaurant and ate dinner outside on the street. Johnny tore up a veal chop while Tom and I shared a meal and an appetizer. The brussels sprouts smothered in cheese was amazing! We were walking around and I showed them the huge outside bar I had discovered a month previously. Over by the outside bar, we found our first impromptu dance floor with a DJ working the crowd. A my son Johnny was “cutting a rug” and dancing with random people in one location with a DJ. Now once the DJ played a song we were not feeling, it was the time to leave and head towards the pier along the water. We only had enough time to walk to the pier and checked out fireworks that were south of the Brooklyn Bridge. I wanted for us to walk to the Brooklyn Bridge to get a better view of the fireworks. However, we didn’t have time to make it there. We saw the fireworks from the pier and checked out the boats going fast in the East River. We then found another outdoor party venue and danced with more people. It was a good evening and I am glad we carved time to hang out down there. The boys wanted more food so we found a greasy spoon. We found a cookies and ice cream spot, called Insomnia Cookies in Battery Park. The boys took the rest of the cookies home. We got back to home base and feasted and hit the hay. I liked that we had adjoining rooms so I closed my door when I wanted to go to sleep.

The next day, we checked out and I recorded the view from the top of the hotel. We then walked to check the reflective ponds where the Twin Towers once stood. We then made our way to the Oculus mall, opened in 2016, to check out the stores. I found out the name Oculus is Latin for “eye”. If you look through the glass strip openings in the ceiling, you will see the Freedom Tower. Therefore, the name is to refer to the “eye in the sky”. It is a memorial reference to the lives lost when the Twin Towers collapsed on September 11, 2001. We found all of the stores to be EXPENSIVE!! We all wondered who shops there!? The Oculus is a white structure that resembles angel wings. The Oculus has the World Trade Center subway stop that was rebuilt. That subway & PATH train terminal was destroyed when the Twin Towers collapsed. It is a beauty of a location and worth a visit to pay our respects. Here is a photo of the Oculus building that is near the Twin Towers memorial space:

We made our way back to the cars safely. We hit the diner for a nice meal. I didn’t sleep very much in the hotel due to the action and activities. The crazy part is we walked 13.5 miles during our 4th of July adventure and return to home!! As a New Yorker, we do a ton of walking!! Therefore, I took a huge nap as soon as I was able to once my sons went home. Well…how are YOU enjoying your summer so far? I can’t believe that we are 1/3 of the way through summer already! Perhaps you will want to take a tour of New York City this summer? We are very much open now and ready for tourists. No matter our plans, I hope you make the best of the rest of your summer!
