In this feature we were at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook with Queen Mary 2 just as the beautiful morning sun rose over the landscape , here we see the beautiful New York skyline with the new rising WTC in the background.
Queen Mary 2 is a beautiful ship , her sleek and modern profile dominates the Brooklyn Skyline and has become a fixture in the local area as the " Giant ship." ironically the IKEA store is only a few blocks away just like in Philadelphia with the SS United States.
As the morning progresses we do a routine flyby of QM2 on the Ikea water taxi which not only provides easy transit to lower Manhattan but a stunning view of Queen Mary 2 as well as the other ships docked at the Brooklyn Terminal.
