We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

Me & Mom - The South Street Seaport Museum Galleries are small but interesting. Currently, there is an exhibit called Migrants and Millionaires aboard the Great Liners 1900-1914. The exhibit includes a diagram of a ship from the Cunard line as well as pictures of other ships. There are ship models including one of  the lightship Ambrose. The actual lightship Ambrose is at the South Street Seaport too, and you can go on a tour of it. There is a picture of boarding pass from the White Star Line and a 3rd class meal menu from the White Star Line. The Titanic was part of the White Star Line. There were pictures of immigrants at Ellis Island. There was a  video about trunks and how to pack for a long voyage. There was a lot more too. The exhibit really showed what it was like to go on a long ocean voyage and how different it was for the the rich and poor classes. Downstairs in the museum, there were a few artifacts not necessarily directly related to the main exhibit. There was figurehead from a ship, there was a giant bell, there was a life preserver from the Wavertree which is another ship that you can visit at the South Street Seaport, and there were a few other things. The South Street Seaport Museum Galleries are a great place to learn about the history of sea travel.
