New York, New York

We are visiting a place where there is so much to do we don't even know where to begin.  We are on a mooring at 79th street, which isn't calm waters but close to the action.
So far we have been to Central Park and the Museum of Natural History.  We will have more pictures soon.
This morning we had a big wake up call at 7:00 AM when another boat collided with ours.  Figures the one morning the kids were sleeping in.  
It was quite a sight for all with Paul and I running around deck in our underwear.  
Not much damage to our boat but the other boat played pin ball all the way down the mooring field.  The Coast Guard was on the scene soon after and is going to talk to us later.  
Nick is very excited for their visit,  he would like to join the Coast Guard when he gets older.

This is the boat that hit us.

We travelled all over on the subway

Aboard the Intrepid there were a lot of interactive exhibits

This is a 22' long Lego replica of the Intrepid

Back in Times Square these guys insisted we take a picture of them with the kids  then asked for  tips.

the Freedom Tower completed.

We sailed just a few hundred yards off The Statue of Liberty.
