We started at Pier 83.
The Intrepid Museum with the Shuttle Enterprise which is still undergoing repairs from hurricane Sandy. The shuttle enclosure was blown off and had to be replaced. Many of the major tourist attractions are still closed for repair, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. There was ongoing repair on the Brooklyn Bridge and I don't know if this was also Sandy related.
Looking down the Hudson - NY on right and NJ on left.
The new World Trade building.
It was a cloudy day with a stiff breeze and a lot of boats were under sail.
Looking back at the tip of Manhattan.
The Statue of Liberty.
The South Street seaport.
The Brooklyn Bridge undergoing repair.
The Manhattan Bridge. There are some really pretty bridges on the East River!
The Statue of Liberty and Bayonne in the distance.
Empire State Building.
The United Nations.
The 59th Street Bridge and the tramway to Roosevelt Island.
Well with all the bridges on the East River I had to include one on the Hudson. The George Washington bridge.
We didn't actually get to completely circle Manhattan. The river levels were very high and it was high tide. The ship couldn't get under a bridge on the Harlem River.
