Our day started with a short bike ride around Liberty State Park, which is on the point adjacent to our marina. We passed what was once the Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal where immigrants would gather and depart for their eventual destinations across the country after completing processing at Ellis Island. At the park are two long, parallel, high steel walls that direct the eye to the spot where the Twin Towers once stood on Manhattan Island, and upon the walls are the names of New Jersey victims. The park has several miles of walking and biking trails, all with views of the harbor.
