|J.F. Kennedy Blvd., one of the major roads in Jersey City.|
We were in New Jersey on two occasions. First was to meet my brother's friend, a Filipino teacher he came to know back in his college days. Second, upon the invitation of mom's high school classmate.

|The Empire State Building and the view of NYC from the top.|
So much to see in such limited time. I am usually drawn to places unknown with very little hype. But this time around, I had to play tourist in NYC.
Our first stop after Hurricane Irene was the Empire State Building. Yes, that same building with King Kong. And where Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan met in the film Sleepless in Seattle.

|The Ronkonkoma Station|
Our gracious hosts in New York lived in Long Island which is a considerable distance from New York City. So when we wanted to see the Big Apple, they'd drive us to the Ronkonkoma Station to get on the train that would take us to the Penn Station in NYC.
