i headed to nyc with some friends for a weekend hockey tournament and to check out the always interesting city. we stayed in chelsea on manhattan island and on friday we skated down to times square and later played our first hockey game. on saturday we skated past the wtc ruins to battery park for a view of the statue of liberty. then we checked out wall street/city hall and took the subway to central park where we skated some more and then took the subway back for two hockey games that evening. that night we tried to go up in the empire state building but it was closed due to being "overcrowded". last time i was there it was closed due to "weather". it's like someone is trying to keep me from going up there, what are they hiding?

well, we won the tournament which means nothing really but of course it is generally more fun to win than lose.
