Space Shuttle Enterprise - 2012
During my visit to NY in 2012, I was able to witness the final transportation of the Space Shuttle Enterprise. As the day grew long and the shuttle took its time to pass into our view, the clouds began to form into a storm. While our parade wasn't rained on, thankfully, the light effects called for additional photos, especially of my neighbor's hair, whom we shall call Chica.
When the space shuttle finally arrived, it was guarded by so many boats and helicopters. I also realized it was relatively small, which you can see from the photo with the cruise ship. It was also ridiculous that a billion-dollar vehicle was merely sitting on a platform only a few feet above the water.
