NYC and The Harbor to America

NYC and The Harbor to America
This was the first stop for many of our fellow countrymen.

Coming into New York from the Atlantic Ocean is a wonderous experience. In calm seas you can spot the Verrazano Bridge, count the arriving flights at JFK Airport (2 per minute) and almost smell the hotdogs on Coney Island. When the weather has been less than kind, you're lucky to see 2 boat lengths ahead in between the ocean swells colliding with the ebbing tide from the Hudson and East Rivers.

These photos are a small slice of the unique sights seen from the waterways surrounding New York Harbor. Click on each picture below for a better view

What a skyline!
A Driving Range on the Hudson River.
Real Estate for sale. Cheap? Note the crumbling walls covered with ivy.
Imagine taking a gondola across the East River to work each morning.
A waterside park has a nautical piece of art - the bow of a boat jutting out into the East River...and some graffiti adorning the boat.
A dinner cruise boat passes near the Statue of Liberty. Not much to look AT, this boat offers an incredible waterside view of New York and New Jersey's harbor.
The Long Island Railroad would stop here and roll the cars onto a barge to cross the river back in the good old days.
An impatient speed boat zooms past us in the East River on the way to Riker's Island. See the blue and white multi-storied barge on the right? That's an addition to the Riker's Island Prison to combat overcrowding.
As the East River joins the Long Island Sound you'll see the United States Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point.
You can see the amusement park just off the coast of Coney Island.
The USCG stops everyone, commercial and pleasure boat traffic alike, to allow swimmers complete their water portion of an ironman race...across the EAST RIVER under the Brooklyn Bridge. Brave swimmers!
