Enterprise Shuttles Beneath Several MTA Bridges

<p>
A historic journey for the space shuttle that will permanently call New York home.</p>
<p>
The Space Shuttle Enterprise continued its journey to the Intrepid Sea, Air &amp; Space Museum in Manhattan gliding through New York waterways and past the Cross Bay Veterans Memorial, Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial and Verrazano-Narrows bridges. </p>
<p>
After being loaded onto an Army Corps of Engineers' barge near JFK Airport, it was towed beneath the three MTA bridges on Sunday afternoon and docked at Port Elizabeth in New Jersey. </p>
<p>
Huge crowds of onlookers gathered at various view-points along the water to watch the procession. Among those with cameras were MTA Photographer Patrick Cashin, Bridges and Tunnels Maintenance Superintendent Brian Mullin, and Bridges and Tunnels Capt. Richard Hildebrand who took the images seen below. </p>
<p>
The Enterprise will be floated up the Hudson River and make its way to the Intrepid where it will be on permanent display. </p>
