I went to New York and all I got were these pictures of New York

My brothers and dad met my cousin and uncle in Jersey City the other day and we hopped a train to NYC, then a subway to Yankee Stadium to watch the Phillies put on a clinic for the Yankees (in 11 innings). I planned to document the trip in pictures culminating in pictures of my bros and me and my dad in front of the field, but then didn't feel like taking those pics. So I'm left with these.

My uncle works on Wall Street, but the address they use is the side alley behind his building because he sells Catholic School Books and the nuns and priests wouldn't approve. Shhh, don't tell.

A-Rod striking out I'm sure.

The amount of tourists taking pictures of and looking at ground zero is absurd. There's tarps around 95% of it and people take pictures of the tarps. I don't get it.

These are great pics but I think a picture of the "guys" would have been cool.

You were in my hood!! JC and NYC!

But funny that I was out of the country then. Bummer.

How is the new Stadium? Any time A-Rod strikes out, it's a good thing.

I'm going to NYC in August (why August? IT's a long, long story) and I want to see ground zero. I don't know why. I went to the top of (one of the) twin towers in 1997 and took pictures looking down.

Where are the pics of you and the bros?

The Yankees suck.

I walk by there (WTC) every day & I don't get it either...I do get the people standing there in silence & taking a my opinion...those are the ones who get it.

In August go by the 10 Firehouse on Liberty Street (south side)...there's a very touching memorial in bronze on the wall outside.

A-rod striking out...yeah, I like that pic.
