Well we have made it to New York.   I will let the pictures tell the story.    We left the dreamy harbour of Mystic Seaport and all of its history and have come now to the stark reality of of the modern age.

Here is the view this morning as we do laundry and get showers.
This is one of about a dozen fast ferry’s that were constantly buzzing around us. When they are coming straight at you they look like a Ti fighter (Star Wars). They are catamarans and have very tall top sides that look like vertical wings.

View up the Hudson. If you look closely you can see the radar on Tevah. It was a great mooring last night compared to the one at Norwalk, where I awoke to the swells and did not get back to sleep till about 4:30. Left at 6:30
First view of some iconic structures. Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Statue of Liberty way off in the background.
Here is something really Ironic. While in the historic Mystic Seaport, one of the displays was of an outhouse at the end of a pier. The notice went on to say that because of modern no discharge laws they could not make it completely authentic. This is because it was open at the bottom and everything just dropped into the sea below. Right now we are sitting in down town Manhattan, where everything is , guess what, dropped into the sea below us. You can see the light in the bottom of the shower, and when the washing machine empties you can hear it splash below.
I just flushed the toilet and guess what!💩
