NYC Arrival - 17 Jan 2012
Jan 17, 2012

We passed under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge approx 11:30 and were alongside at Pier 90 about an hour later. It was cold, wet [sleeting] and windy. Passengers were permitted out onto the raised bow area fwd on Deck 5 - it was bitter!
Photographs on board QUEEN ELIZABETH, before and after passing under the bridge, various vessels on the Hudson [for more of these please see http://public.fotki.com/Magwa/cruising/queen-elizabeth-jan-2012/seascapes-n-murky-s/ ] and views around and about. Lighthouses, Staten Island Ferries, CELEBRITY SILHOUETTE at Bayonne, the Statue of Liberty, Pier 40 [ex HAL berths now a football stadium], Erie Lackawanna Railway Terminal, Skylines etc. As you will see it was all pretty murky weather - 17 January 2012
For a movie clip of the approaches and passing under Verrazano Narrows bridge with whistles/horns blowing see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OOE3GC83hto

Broadway & Times Square - 17 Jan 2012
Jan 17, 2012

After finally berthing around an hour late and eventually passing through immigration [a 2 hour queue] it was 15:45 and not a lot of daylight left. Plans to cross on the Staten Island Ferry or visit USS INTREPID were scuppered due to the time and miserable weather, so we walked up to Broadway and along to Times Square, did a bit of shopping and then walked back to Pier 90 after a couple of hours. It only takes around 10 - 15 minutes and you can't get 'lost'. Here are just a few photos around Broadway and Times Square, then the Pier 90 sign lit up - 17 January 2012

Downtown Manhattan Coach Tour - 18 Jan 2012
Jan 18, 2012

With an evening flight from JFK we took a coach tour of Downtown Manhattan from 09:00. These photos are in the main taken through the coach windows at odd angles and probably not of much interest to anyone else :) For most of this tour I took video clips.
We passed through the Theater District, Midtown, Chelsea, Greenwich Village, Chinatown etc to Battery Park and South Street Seaport for lunch before the airport. Stops were made at the World Financial Center for a look at Ground Zero and the new WTC buildings under construction [no 7 is already completed] and Battery Park.

A very poor clip of CHARLESTON EXPRESS way off in the murk and wind of the Mid Atlantic, done before I discovered her name. You can however see how far off she was, not much else http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPV09-3NAwA
