New York, New York

Liberty Harbor RV ParkWatch which lane you get into when on the New Jersey Turnpike with an RV towing a car — we could not pick up a toll ticket, so when we got to the exit in Jersey City, we were charge over $24.00, instead of $5.80 for the short trip!  Liberty Harbor RV Park (across from the Statue of Liberty seen in this photo) was waiting for our arrival after driving 123 miles from Connecticut.  This was a convienient RV Park with a water taxi 100 yards away, or a subway five blocks away, from New York City.

View of Manhatten to the southMonday, we did an open top Grayline tour after first taking the subway from Jersey City to 9-11 Ground Zero.  We both have been to NYC in the 1990’s on business trips.  Ground zero is under heavy construction and unfortunately the view was disappointing.  St. Paul’s Chapel, used by the rescue workers, has some very reflective displays.

Tuesday, we met up with our friends (Tom & Millie – we also connected with in boston) who were back in NYC from their coastal cruise.  We attended the play GREASE! — where the stars were selected by their TV Show auditions.  We enjoyed it a lot.  We had dinner after the play and Melitta and I returned to our RV via subway after midnight!

NYC Central ParkAdventure Caravan wagonmasters for our Canadian Maritime trip arrived at the RV Park with an east coast caravan of RVs.  We were invited on their bus tour and to a play with them Wednesday evening, so we extended our stay in the park.  This was very convenient, as the bus came to the park, picked the group up, and took us on the tour and to/from the theater.  The play, "Wicked", was different.  The timeframe lead up to the Wizard of Oz, where you learned how the scarecrow and the tin man were originated.

Thursday, we departed for a 84 mile trip to Marlton Elks Lodge in New Jersey for a stop, and Herb’s birthday celebration, on our way to Washington DC.
