29 September 2009 | 79th Street Boat Basin
Uneventful trip on the last leg to NYC. Lots of boat traffic. AIS alarm going off every few minutes. I "let" Beckie do all the driving to dodge them all. She's pretty darn good at it.
We're tied up at the 79th Street boat basin, just a few blocks from Central park. We took the train downtown and visited Times Square and 30 Rock. Some things you can only see in NYC.... Although Beckie refused to have her picture taken with the Naked Cowboy who was play his guitar in the middle of Times Square. Not sure why!
Visited the WTC site. Very moving, very somber to see some of the buildings and streets you saw in all the news accounts.
And of course, if you were at the farewell bash at OPM, you'd remember that it was Monday last night....... offshore crews beware.
Off to do laundry and continue our touristy thing.
