Cruise Ship on the Hudson

Lady Liberty

Lady Liberty

We woke up at six am, rolled groggily out of bed and headed up to the deck, where a line of tourists were snapping madly at the Statue of Liberty. The lady herself was bathed in the pale morning light, welcoming our huddled, shivering masses to the states.  As we headed upriver on the Hudson toward the Manhattan Cruise Terminal at 51st St. familiar landmarks came into view- the hole left by the destruction of the World Trade Center, the New Yorker building, and the familiar centers of Manhattan: Midtown and Downtown.  We had arrived!

Looking back on downtown…..only 30 minutes to go before we disembark!
