Exploring New York. I had a exciting, fun time at New York with my family and seeing new things that I’ve never seen before. I had a fun stay at the Paramount Hotel and I also had a fun time exploring the other streets that are uncommon and also going into the woods.

The New York Public Library

During spring break, our family went to New York and while we where there we visited the New York Public Library. The library was three stories high and was extremely vast with all of the books and different rooms with maps and atlases. This library was very grand and had extreme detail on the roof, floors, and some of the paintings on the walls.

Cabin in The Woods

During spring break, our family went to New York. We went into Bear Mountain, there was an abandoned cabin in the woods. We pulled over onto the side of the road and climbed down a small hill full of snow to take pictures of the cabin. This cabin was built nearly on top of a stream and it was made out of wood that had rotten out after a while.

The Stream

The cabin was built next to this stream. It was extremely difficult to try and get inside the cabin because the cabin was almost collapsing into the water. There were two pieces of wood and a tree trunk that feel across the stream causing a bridge. I started walking a bit onto this bridge to take some of the photographs but, it wasn’t sturdy enough.

The Fire Place

Near the abandoned Cabin in The Woods, there was also another cabin that had been destroyed by a fire but, the only thing that stood in remembrance was the fire place. There were pieces of wood, rusty nails and glass buried under snow so, it took a lot of patience and coordination to walk along the site. It was very exciting to experience walking in the snow and having this opportunity to explore these abandoned cabins and fireplaces.

Our hotel room was a block away from Times Square while we were staying in New York. The colors were very vibrant and the lights were bright. Times Square was always packed with people that were from different places in the world and also other people from the buildings around that were working.

Hockey Game

While we were in New York, we went to see my little cousin play hockey in the West Point arena. The score was tied 5 to 5, it was a great victory for their players.

Over Spring break in New York, we were exploring in the woods. This frozen lake was near a Hockey Rink that is usually used for the Army and a football field. It was really interesting seeing the ice starting to melt.
