What is the deal with this?

Lets be honest. We are the truest kind of BFFs. We met at Girls' Camp 1996 in St. Lou, survived high school and 2 years as roommates at BYU. Now, we find ourselves BOTH in NYC, which rocks, and as we contemplated how we should spend quality BFF time together - the answer seemed obvious. We must beebop the boroughs in matching purple hats every Saturday morning. Holla!

1: Battery Park and Battery Park City

Rule #1 in our club: you must wear your purple paraphernalia (we have an extra hat for honorary members).

Historic Castle Clinton - an old fort built in 1807

WW2 monument

This is a monument to all those who died at sea during WW2. See that little speck in the water? That's the Statue of Liberty.

That's more like it.

Megan's best attempt at being solemn in front of The American Merchant Marine monument - it shows the sinking bow of a submarine with three crew members pulling up another man from the water. It is heartbreaking to look at and maybe a little creepy.

This statue baffled us. It is a cat and a monkey wearing clothes, and they appear to be in love. We do not pretend to know what it represents.

Are we still in NYC? Yep, there is a beautiful promenade along the waterfront at Battery Park.

A memorial for NYC police officers.

The Irish Hunger Memorial

Next week ... ??? Help me out here, Meg.

I love the cat/monkey statue, although it is kind of weird.
