One World Trade Center is the lead building of the new World Trade Center complex. It is 105-stories high and is the tallest building in the United States due to its radio antenna which helps it reach 1,776 feet.

Other places we visited include the 3-story Toys-R-Us store which is located at Times Square, and the Lego store, located near Rockefeller Center.

We stayed at the Hampton Inn located on Pearl Street. It was a nice hotel and their breakfasts were delicious! Parking was $20 a day.

We had a great time in New York City and if you have never been there, I highly recommend you add it to your bucket list. I want to leave you with this one tip, when buying from a vendor, make sure you ask the vendor how much their food is prior to placing your order. We learned this the hard way after paying $50 for 8 hot dogs and 2 bottles of water.
