On Columbus weekend, a group of Ducks fans went to New York City and Philadelphia to catch our team play at Madison Square Garden and Wachovia Bank arena.
Karen, Jack, Alice and I flew in to JFK, and took a shuttle to the hotel. Martin met us later that evening. Meanwhile, we wandered around Manhattan, and made one of the stops the NHL Store, located near Rockefeller Center.

On one of our free days, we took the subway to the World Trade Center/ Ground Zero.

Another free day roaming around Manhattan. We found the FDNY store and went to check it out.

Walking down 5th Avenue, we spied a group of New York’s finest (but not always the nicest)

Last time I was in New York, we went to the Empire State Building. I heard the view from “The Rock” was just as nice… and it was! The wait was shorter and the view was much better.
