Harlyn’s ducky is in an Empire State of mind

Harlyn’s ducky made it to New York City. We took a walk from downtown Brooklyn to the Brooklyn Bridge Park to see the skyline of lower Manhattan.

Right away, he found a few old friends. After squawking at each other for a few minutes, he had to bid them farewell and move on his tour.
Our first stop was the Brooklyn Bridge, which was built in 1883 to connect the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. It was the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time.
Ducky wanted to stop and see Jane’s Carousel by the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s almost 100 years old.
Ducky paid $2.75 for a metro card and hopped on the subway to ride from Brooklyn into Manhattan. NYC’s subway system was opened in 1904. It’s one of the oldest subway systems in the world, and it is the world’s largest with 472 stations.
Ducky visited the World Trade Center, which is the tallest building in the United States. It is flanked by this spectacular building, which is actually a subway station, known as the Oculus.
Determined to strike it rich on Wall Street, Ducky visited the New York Stock Exchange. He met the Fearless Girl, a symbol of female empowerment.
Just across from the Stock Exchange and the Fearless Girl, ducky visited Federal Hall for a selfie with President George Washington. NYC was the original capital of the United States, and Federal Hall is on the location where the first US Congress met, and where Washington took the Oath of Office.
Ducky took the bull by the horns. He was inspired by this statue, which was made as a reminder of a better future during hard times.
Ducky finally made it to see the Statue of Liberty. The statue was a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States in 1886.
Ducky visited the East Coast Memorial, which is dedicated to those who served in the US Navy in the Atlantic during World War II.
