Yesterday we caught the ferry to Dumbo but as well as going to the Jane's carousel we headed west along the waterfront towards Pier 6. On the way is the old navy vessel you can make a free tour of. A transporter during the Vietnam War, the IX 514 is now used to train the pilots who take tourists on sight seeing flights over the City. They land their helicopters on the deck which is about the size of a tennis court. Xave enjoyed it, but found some of it a bit scary and he isn't ready for a day on the USS Intrepid Museum yet. By the way, it didn't end up raining.
