Day 28 &29 NYC here we come

Posted by on July 24, 2012

Capt Dave and Capt Pete joined Capt Tom on the 155 mile three day leg from Troy/Waterford NY to the Big Apple. We had calm seas, fair current and good weather all the way to the city. Our stops were at Kingston NY and Croton on the Hudson. On Sunday aftternoon we arrived at the 79th st boat basin on the Hudson. It was on the west side of Manhattan between the George Washington bridge and the cruise ship piers. We were lucky enough to get a mooring there, albeit a bit exposed to the river swells from all the NY boat traffic. For $30 bucks a night in NYC… who can complain… so it was a little bumpy till the traffic died down.

Dave and Pete had only about 6 hrs to enjoy NYC so we set up a plan to grab as much gusto as possible. First stop would be the famous Katz Deli, via the subway of course. Then after a late lunch of the best Ruebens ever with perfect kinishes

we headed back uptown via the 8th ave subway line to 81st St on Central Park West. After a brief stroll along the park we ended up at the American Museum of Natural History. This is one place not to be missed on a visit to NYC. Of course we went straight to the creatures of the seas exibits. We stayed until closing time and had a 6 block walk back to the boat basin. The night was not over as there were festivals and celebrations of sorts at the waterfront… at least until the thunderstorms rolled in. TB
