Out and About: Liberty State Park & Hoboken
Charlie got off us to an early start. Rather out of the blue, we went to Liberty State Park in Jersey City before 10am, along with people from Quebec, Missouri, Michigan, California, New York, Pennsylvania, and many other places.
Charlie walked, ran, and smiled his way as far out as we could walk towards Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. We've never taken the ferry with Charlie—I've never been on it myself and the lines were already long; good times for us mean being outside and moving around.
Both of which we did, in spades.
After refueling with grilled cheese and summer rolls, we drove up to Hoboken and found (small miracle) a parking spot on the street, right off the main thoroughfare, Washington Street.
We of course had to go down to the waterfront and check out the new construction on Pier C (where some of On the Waterfront was shot) and, too, the Manhattan skyline.
It's good to be out.
