This month marks the 25th anniversary of the designation of the USS Intrepid as a national landmark. The famous aircraft carrier is permanently moored at West 46th Street and houses the Intrepid Air and Space Museum.
According to the Museum’s website, the Intrepid “was commissioned and served proudly in World War II. She went on to serve as one of the primary recovery vessels for NASA, three tours of duty off Vietnam, and submarine surveillance in the North Atlantic during the Cold War.”
If you are planning a trip to New York City, or just happen to be on the West Side of Manhattan, take a look. You won’t be disappointed.
