NYC to West Point

I caught the tide yesterday up the Hudson River and I was amazed by how quickly the city disappeared.
Small clusters of homes in beautiful lush hillsides became the norm. There are train tracks on either side of the river with fast commuter rail on the east bank.
There were so many trains passing by that I have enough to do a train video and for those that are interested, like my grandson, I will post to my YouTube channel after I update my  blog. Here it is here.

I passed West Point Military academy at dusk.
And had a gorgeous sunset just before I dropped the anchor.
But I am getting ahead of myself and going back to NYC, here is Ellis Island, the famous entry point for US immigrants.
And if you want to live in NYC for free, buy an old sailboat like three young enterprising guys in the anchorage.
The Intrepid sea, Air & Space museum on 46th street looked impressive.
Here is the FDNY in front of ground zero.
The Indian Point Nuclear Energy Center.
