Trip to NYC

I had the opportunity to visit a friend who just moved to New York City in the Fall. I took the train, which was my first Amtrak experience. I took a bus to the Amtrak station in Boston and had some extra time so I laid down in a park to take in the warm air and sun. Relaxing in Boston On the first day we went to Times Square to buy tickets to Phantom of the Opera. Times Square was where I spent the most time on my last trip to New York so it was nice to be back. It's a very busy area but kinda cool. Times Square Next was the Intrepid Museum. The Intrepid is a retired aircraft carrier that was turned into a museum. My favorite part was seeing the SR-71 Blackbird . It is the plane that was being designed in Area 51 during the cold war. My next favorite part was the real Soyuz capsule that was used in 2005 for a manned mission to the International Space Station.
