Day 20: Philadelphia to Boston, Atlanta Braves vs Red Sox

From the west side of the Hudson River on the New Jersey Turnpike, a view of the World Trade Center.

We were going to watch the Yankees play the Mets this afternoon and then drive to Boston, but they changed that game to a night game, so we are skipping the Yankees-Mets and going to Boston for an afternoon game.

 

The George Washington Bridge which we will cross over 4 or 5 times.


Connecticut has the most understated welcome sign.
