Yes, you to can “camp” and explore all that New York City has to offer. Technically, the “campground” (note the quotation marks), Liberty Harbor RV Park, is in Jersey City, NJ. And technically you could call it a campground. Realistically, it’s a parking lot with hook-ups (no sewer, just dump station). But what do you want for such close proximity to NYC? That’s what you get for visiting a big city.
Your only a short walk to the train that can take you right into Manhattan. This is the cheapest, and more than likely fastest way, given the traffic, into and out of the city. We’re not here to take in the sites. We’re not big city type people. All the noise and chaos is overwhelming. We are here to attend a trade show.
Once out of the city and back at the campground, David had to unwind. He got out his quadcopter and did some flying.
Note how close you are to your neighbor at this campground. Again, if you want to be close to the city, this is your only option.
At night the view is pretty nice from our windshield. Others are not so lucky. We just happen to be in one of the few spots that face the buildings and the city and not other campers.
This campground is also located around a marina. So you are close to the water. A very short walk to the end of the docks and you can see NYC and the Hudson River. A ferry can also pick you up here to take you into Manhattan if you so desire.
Looking the other way you can see a nice park across the waterway and the Statue of Liberty. Remember you can click on the pictures to increase the size.
So all in all, not a terribly exciting start to our adventures. We’re just hanging out in the air conditioning, dreaming about our new Winnebago Tour that we should hopefully have next week, if all goes well.
So then we’ll have another home to move out of and a new one to move into.
Can’t wait for that! Then the adventure will truly begin.
