    It's hard to take chances but sometimes it's better if you do

    With its move across Kennedy Airport this morning, Space Shuttle Enterprise has begun the final leg of its journey from the Smithsonian in Washington DC to the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum in New York, a leg which will take a few days.

    Here's a full schedule:

    On Saturday, June 2, beginning no earlier than 4 pm, Enterprise will be lifted by crane and placed onto the barge. Craning takes approximately three hours.

    On Sunday, June 3, at 7:45 a.m., the barge carrying Enterprise will depart JFK, towed by a Weeks Marine tugboat, and will travel along the shore of Queens and Brooklyn, passing the Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge at 3:30 p.m.; Coney Island at 4:19 p.m.; and under the Verrazano Bridge at 5:34 p.m. before docking at Weeks Marine in Port Elizabeth, NJ at 6:00 p.m.

    On Monday, June 4, the barge and shuttle will remain at Weeks Marine in Port Elizabeth, NJ.

    On Tuesday, June 5, at 9:15 a.m., the barge and shuttle will leave Weeks Marine, passing the Statue of Liberty at 9:50 a.m.; the World Trade Center at 10:40 a.m.; and travel up the Hudson River, completing its journey at the Intrepid Museum at 11:30 a.m. where it will be lifted by crane onto the flight deck and put into position facing the Hudson River. Craning operation takes three hours.


    Enterprise will be open to the public beginning July 19th.

    Message posted today by the Intrepid museum:

    ''All fans of space shuttle Enterprise will be happy to know that the NASA’s first space shuttle orbiter is bound for Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.

    After her ferry flight from Dulles to John F. Kennedy airport on April 27, 2012, space shuttle Enterprise will now employ yet another mode of transportation—barge—to complete her journey home and arrive safely in Manhattan.

    The journey begins today when Enterprise, atop the trailer she was placed on after being de-mated from the NASA Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) 747, is rolled from her current location under the protective Radiant Aviation Hangar to a near-water location at John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport. Tonight, preparations will be made to lift Enterprise by crane and place her on to the barge in the early afternoon on Saturday, June 2.

    Enterprise fans from Coney Island to Clinton are invited to watch this modern marvel float from Jamaica Bay to New York Harbor. On Sunday, June 3rd the space shuttle is scheduled to depart John F. Kennedy airport at 7:45am and make its way around Brooklyn. Projected look out points include the Rockaways, Coney Island, Bay Ridge. The barge is set pass under the Verrazano Bridge around 5:30pm before it docks overnight in Bayonne, New Jersey. Here, crews will prepare space shuttle Enterprise for the second leg of her journey.

    It is not until Tuesday, June 5th that Enterprise will continue up the Hudson River. She is scheduled to depart Bayonne at approximately 9:15am and sail past the Statue of Liberty and Freedom Tower before she reaches her final destination at Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.''



    Which location would be better for photos, the west side waterfront or across the river in Jersey ?

    On Monday, the Shuttle will be transferred to a different barge at the Bayonne Dry Dock. The problem is what time will this transfer take place ? Naturally, the weather looks unsettled this weekend and that could shake-up all the schedules.

    They forgot to add "It'll cost you $50 per person to see that and the Concorde when you come to Intrepid."

    I'm done with my love affair with that museum. They used to give a charity I was associated with a good rate for a huge fundraiser for young professionals that used to raise over $200k every year. After the refit, the rate to use the ship suddenly more than doubled. Pathetic. They invested so much in getting the refit down its now being run purely from the bottom line point of view. They should lose their 501(c)(3) status as far as I'm concerned.

    The Museum also got rid of the Iwo Jima flag-raising replica however they were the only NYC institution that wanted a Concorde to display. I attended a free Memorial Day service last week and even got seated and free bottles of water.

    You should have a decent view from the pier next to Ikea in Red Hook. Lots of parking there.
