START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – A WALK THROUGH UNION SQUARE .

It  seems  as  though  the  three  of  you  have  taken  every  subway  line  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City .

Not  really .

Today  you  all  are  taking  the  train  to  14th  Street  –  Union  Square .

This  is  the  place  where  the  first  Labor  Day  Parade  took  place .

It’s  also  the  place  where ,  according  to  the  reports  of  the  day ,  a  quarter  of  a  million  people  showed  up  to  voice  their  SUPPORT  for  the  Civil  War .

You  figured  that’s  why  there’s  a  statue  of  Abraham  Lincoln  in  the  square .

There’s  also  another  statue  of  George  Washington  to  the  dismay  of  one  of  your  cousins .

She’s  looking  at  the  statue  of  the  first  president  that  seems  to  take  up  most  of  Union  Square  Park .

George  Washington  seems  to  be  everywhere  in  this  city ,  so  much  so  that  you  all  are  beginning  to  think  that  you’re  in  Washington  DC ,  not  New  York  City .

The  statue  of  the  president  sitting  on  his  horse  is  very  impressive ,  though .

One  of  your  cousins  wants  to  take  a  selfie  with  it .

Or  at  least  try  to .

All  three  of  you  have  to  laugh  as  this  statue  seems  to  cut  your  cousin  out  of  her  own  picture .

No  matter  how  many  selfies  she  takes ,  it looks  as  though  she’s  STILL  not  in  the  picture .

There  seems  to  be  a  lot  of  of  things  going  on  in  Union  Square .

You  see  a  Farmer’s  Market ,  a  dog  park ,  not  to  mention  all  those  shops  and  restaurants  around  the  square .

The  three  of  you  go  back  to  the  subway  and  back  to  your  hotel .

You  might  do  something  later ,  but  you’re  not  sure  what .

Your  cousin  did  finally  get  that  selfie  by  the  way .
