The East River, NY

Coming through the East River passing all the sights and under the 7 very high bridges was pretty amazing. The current through the river gave us a boost of about 4-5 knots so we arrived in the Long Island Sound on the other side pretty quickly. Thank goodness we weren’t going the other way!
