We spent 2 days in New York. The sail in up the Hudson was magical. It was 6.30am and the sun was up.It was a beautiful clear morning and a wonderful sunrise. We sailed past the Statue of Liberty.
Immigration was a bit of a pain. However, we were first to disembark as we were on deck 8 and we only had to queue for an hour but others took longer we understand. The immigration officer was very pleasant and jovial. He asked me if I was going to Macy's and had I been to New York before. I said "yes" and he replied "So, you know the way to Macys. Shall I ring them and tell them you are on your way?" I replied"Yes please and can you order some coffees for us?"
We had fun during our two days and re-visited places like Times Square, Broadway, the Pennsylvania Hotel, Central Station and all the usual highlights including Macy's and Bloomingdales.
We did find the prices had escalated though.
At least being berthed at Pier 88 mid town Manhattan it was easy to walk into the city and to get around. We were also next to the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and to Concord.
