    I visited the Intrepid museum today with my 9 year old nephew andI have to say it was an excellent experience. I actually wan to go back, because the have excellent programming for kids - which we took advantage of - and there's so much for adults there. The tour of the submarine was awesome.

    There's a submarine tour? I was there when I was about 8 for a friend's birthday, and I don't remember that.

    Submarine! That wasn't there when I visited. I agree, it is a brilliant museum.

    In 1989, the (sub) Growler became part of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum complex.

    The sub was in Brooklyn in drydock for a while. The hull was repaired.

    ^Definitely!

    Seriously, that would totally kick ass if they get a shuttle.

    Has anyone been out on Pier 84 recently? (the pier right next to the Intrepid). They have closed most of it and are replacing all the pavers - completely resurfacing it - like it was a shabby job when done originally. Very irritating.

    And it would certainly raise its stature in the museum world, don't you think, because ...

    ... it's presently a little rinky-dink?

    Not sure what exactly you mean by rinky-dink. You mean cheezy? Cheap looking? Small time? I wouldn't say it was any of those.

    In fact I think it was one of the best and certainly one of the most popular new piers in all of Hudson River Park. Aside from being among the largest piers, it has it all: a BAR, an interesting little kid's water park, a dancing fountain (which is mesmerizing to watch while having a beer at the bar), a boat house, a lawn, a dog park, bike rental, bathrooms, a water taxi stop, plus all of the regular seating and viewing spots. That's why it's infuriating they didn't construct it properly because now there is yet another construction zone next to a museum of that stature.

    OK, the bar itself is a little rinky dink, I wish it was bigger and better, but I appreciate they used that space for a small bar rather than another minimal snack stand.
