When we were in New York Obama were in Manhattan as well for the UN meetings. We found out when we stumbled upon the many, many officers that you can see in the first picture. We asked them why there were so many and they told us that the president was in the Waldorf Hotel next door. Ken and I wanted to catch a glimpse of the president himself, of course, but after having waited for a while, we decided to move on. We had no idea when we was coming out we figured it might take hours.
Because of the UN meetings the streets were closed of and there was protests and huge greeting groups of people wanting to greet the representative from their country. It was chaos at times!
Speaking of Chaos, we went to Time Square. I don't remember the reason why, but I know we had one and ended up hanging out there for as long as we possibly could before feeling like we were going nuts with all the stuff going on there. It's always nice to walk by Time Square if I have time, I think!
