The views from Liberty Sunset Garden Center on Pier 41 in Red Hook, Brooklyn are unsurpassed. They also have a huge plant selection, and I'll have more on that later. But first, a serendipitous observation of the Crown Princess cruise ship leaving New York Harbor for the Caribbean.
As I was assembling my final purchases to check out, this came into view. The photos don't convey the massiveness of this ship. It seemed to be moving slowly, only because of its size.
It's at least 15 stories tall. If you look at the largest images, you can see people on the decks. That's the only reference for conveying the scale.
