The view from my bow

The Erie Canal "Smile." Yes, its dirty water most of the way!
The Financial Captial of the World. Will it remain that way? Only time will tell.
The NY Passenger Ship Terminal and Intrepid Museum ...
The tall building is of course the Empire State Building. The right most building with a bronze/gold top is Metropolitan Life Insurance Company ("The light that never fails.") My father worked there before and after World War II. He started as a mail hop and ended as a Vice President. This was also the view from my first dorm room at Stevens, he told me to look out each night at "Mother Met" and remember that she was the source of my tuition money.
OK, I cheated, I walked out to the end of the dock...
