    Went to NYC in 2013 and spent 8 hrs on the USS Essex (WW2 carrier).
    Great range of aircraft, including a U-2 and a Concorde on the wharf.
    On the other side of the wharf was an early nuke sub - small compared to what you saw in San Diego (there in 1967)

    Didn't have time to go south.
    Did a sim ride but thought it could have been better if they had used actual footage instead of video game footage.
    Year amazing how clean it is, they don't muck around $400 dollar fine if caught littering no wet bus ticket there
