Another highlight of my vacation was the 4 hours I spent in New York City with my wife and in-laws. We spent 3 and half of the four on the Circle Line boat tour of New York. It's definitely the best way to see New York if you only have an afternoon to do it in. I certainly wasn't going to take my mother in-law to my old stomping grounds, " And this is where I used to buy acid Sharon."
I really learned a lot from the Circle Line tour guide. According to him a lot of movies get filmed in New York City, lots of famous actors and actresses have lived and live in NY, and sooner than later there's going to be nothing in New York but Condos. Very informative. My only complaint about the tour is that I felt that the New Jersey side of the river got neglected a bit.
I think I also learned that the guy who designed the Eiffel tower had something to do with the Statue of Liberty, but I wasn't really paying attention... I was in line trying to get a hot dog. Plenty of great junk food on the Circle Line.
I've got plenty more pics that I will be posting on, Shore Leave in the next couple of days.
