Decided to go here on recommendation of my sister who had visited previously. Located a relaxing (well for NYC anyway?!) 20 min walk from our hotel (New Yorker) in midtown to the ship.
Was a sunny day and chilling out on the main deck looking and reading about the planes was cool, along with bonus great views down the Hudson and back into Manhatten. Then took a walk around the bridge and chatted to some veterans, all quite fascinating.
Following that we toured the midship and took it the size of the ship along with its amazing and often terrifying history from some great historic archive footage. We spent so long in the ship that we managed to miss the tour of the submarine and had to leave as it was closing!
All in all a gem of thing to go and see and very glad we took half a day to do it - probably should've arrived earller than 1.30, but I blame the night before, where we saw some different sights of NYC, through Fireball tinted spectacles (it was my birthday though so am allowed!!
