NYC architecture cruise

Yufei kindly purchased an excursion for Friday morning, on an AIA tour completely circumnavigating Manhattan by boat.

With an architect on board, this tour was educational.  And with a glass of bubbly, this tour was fun too!

Sadly for us, the Spuyten Duyvil bridge couldn’t open in the extreme cold, so we missed the Hudson River on the upper west side of Manhattan — meaning no Cloisters, no Riverside Church, and so on.

But a good time had by the 20 or so folks on the boat.

One World Trade Center.
The low bridge at water level is the one that wouldn’t open. Looking westward on the Harlem River, toward the Hudson.
