The prototype space shuttle that arrived in New York City by air earlier this spring was on the move again, this time by sea.
"It brings a tear to your eye," said Richard Kaplan of Massapequa Park, one of the many spectators gathered near Queens' Cross Bay Bridge Sunday afternoon to watch the shuttle Enterprise cross the New York Harbor by barge.
The shuttle was placed on a barge Saturday and readied for a slow journey through the harbor to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum on Manhattan's West Side. Sunday, when the tide was just right, it began the water-bound journey.
