The push to the Big Apple… it was an early morning anchor detail and away we went.
With a clear sky and calm seas it was a good day to put our sights on New York City. We rounded Sandy Hook and crossed Lower Bay before long the Verrazano Narrows Bridge came into view.

To my relief the harbor was not horror ably busy and we timed the tide just right. We tied up at Liberty Landing Marina which technically has us still in NEW JERSEY!! - we can't seem to get out of the Garden State. Just a quick ferry ride and we are in the heart of it...
No visit to New York is complete without a stop at Katz for a pastrami on rye
The view from the marina of New York was excellent day and night
