New York City, October 2006

We could see Lady Liberty from our marina.

Our marina was on the Jersey side of the Hudson River, giving us a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline.

The Manhattan skyline...

...and another view.

She's even more beautiful in person!

Hudson River to Liberty Harbor Marina. Next stop was at the Atlantic Highland Marina. After waiting for a weather window we left New York for the Atlantic Ocean passage to Cape May.
