Several ships, including various Tall Ships sailed up the Hudson today, parading along the river for approximately 4 hours. This picture was taken from New Jersey at around 10:40am. It shows the Coast Guard welcoming the ships to New York. Modern naval war vessels from around the world followed the Tall Ships in a beautiful and powerful display as they moved slowly and quietly past our apartment complex, with their crew positioned throughout the vessels in a salute to New York. The Blue Angels also participated, leaving thick trails of smoke as they flew over the ships on this cloudy and rainy morning.
