A cold Spring day in NYC while riding a ferry around the New York City Harbor and then up the East River to see the United Nations. A classic tourist adventure except we were nothing like tourists as my family is 3rd generation New Yorkers. I find getting out on the water is always a great way to see a coastal city. NYC doesn't even feel like a coastal city because of its density of population and buildings but it's surrounded by the Hudson River and the East River and by the New York Harbor opening up to the Atlantic Ocean. A great excuse to do something new and different in New York City.
