Several members of LYC ran a trip aboard Pat and Tricia Kenny’s “Touch of Grey” this past Sunday to the New York Worlds Fare International Food Festival. Now in its second year, The World’s Fare is a grand celebration of equality and the diversity of New York City paying homage to the great Fair of 1964. Over 100 vendors from over 100 cultures came together to unite through authentic food, drink and music curated by New York City’s leading taste makers.
Touch of Grey left LLM shortly after 11am and arrived to the Worlds Fare Marina about 40 minutes later. The spectacular weather made for an easy trip up the East River through Hells Gate past Riker’s Island and into the Flushing Bay. The Festival was a short walk were they found over 100 food vendors, a beer pavilion, and lots of live music. The return trip was just as exciting offering lots of New York City sites.
Thank you Patrick for organizing this wonderful trip. LYC is actively looking for more ideas from our members on simple excursions such as this. If you have any cruising plans this year – whether a short day trip or week long adventure – and are looking for some company, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
