On Thursday my son and I walked to the Intrepid from our apartment.

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is an American military and maritime history museum at Pier 86, 46th Street in Hell’s Kitchen on the West Side of Manhattan (New York). It showcases the aircraft carrier USS Intrepid, the cruise missile submarine USS Growler, many planes (including a Concorde SST and a Lockheed A-12 supersonic reconnaissance plane), and the most thrilling for me: the Space Shuttle Enterprise.
