Liberty Bell

 

This bell, which has been used to announce many an event, including (perhaps ...) the Declaration of Independence), is surrounded by a stubborn legend. But its famous crack is simply due to an infortunate choice of metals to make it.

 

We make a significant diversion on the Jersey Shore and Asbury Park, the city where Bruce Springsteen began his career.

Empire State Building

 

When we arrive in New York City, the weather is really good. We wander around the city and purchase a few last-minute presents. The Empire State Building glitters under the sun, it's beautiful !

 

The weather forecast for tomorrow is less than bright, really. We will see how our last day goes.
