Catskill NY to New York City via the Hudson River

Once through all the locks we could put our masts back up. We did this in Catskill NY.
Sailing down the Hudson River is really quite pretty.

 There are many lighthouses, a few old castles, beautiful homes and scenery.

 New York by water is stunning. It is a unique experience to be able to sail through the city. You know there are millions of people very close to you but you are virtually alone in the river.

Sailing past Lady Liberty is a thrill even for us Canadians. The emotions of what she stands for are not lost on us as we look to see where the old Twin towers once stood.
We anchored near Coney Island and watched the sun set over the city. Stunning is the word that comes to mind.
