Manhattan’s best

This great overhead image, via Maxar/Overview, shows the Navy’s MSC-manned hospital ship USNS Comfort docked at Pier 90, two piers away from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York harbor.

The retired Essex-class carrier has been docked at Pier 86 on Manhattan’s west side for the past 36 years.

For reference, Intrepid is 873-feet long overall, while Comfort, although almost twice as heavy as the WWII carrier, is just a skosh longer, at 894-feet.
