Since my slowness in getting pics posted in my "Trip to NYC in a 12-foot boat" thread has apparently caused a lack of further views/replies, I have decided to start a new thread for the US/NYC portion of the trip.

Buoy marking the Canada-US border where the Richileau River flows out of L. Champlain...


The little skyline of Burlington, VT, on Lake Champlain...


The fjord-like southern part of L. Champlain...


A lucky find...a NY State-provided lean-to for boaters and canoeists to camp at...


An funny sight in Albany, NY.


One of several attractive lighthouses on the Hudson River...


A ship on the Hudson. Large ships can travel upstream as far as Albany.


The famous West Point Academy...


Approaching the Bear Mountain Bridge...


NEXT...In the Big Apple!

My first sighting of the Manhattan skyline in the distance...


Upper West Side apartments along the Hudson...


Trump Place Condos. I think a suite in one of these buildings was won on "The Apprentice."


A Circle Line cruise boat with the Manhattan skyline in the background.


A cruise ship passes Lower Manhattan and the site of the WTC. I didn't get a chance to actually see the site (or any of the city) from close up, as the docking charges in Manhattan were $24 a foot! Shit!!


The Statue of Liberty...


Passing under the Brooklyn Bridge...


The Chrysler Building at dusk...


Yankee Stadium...

I'm actually pretty amazed by this, taking a little 12 foot boat to NYC. How long did the trip take you?

It took me almost 5 weeks in total. Three weeks there and 10 days to get back (via the Erie Canal/ L. Ontario). I'll post a route map I made when I can get it scanned at a friend's.

P.S. Did you guys see the Quebec pics I added in my first thread?
