Tara and John's Engagement - Maritime College, Bronx NY 6/8/13

We decided to take a break from the Connecticut scenery and headed south to the Bronx where John decided to attend college.  Maritime College is located directly under Throg's Neck Bridge, and is one of the oldest established naval forts on the East Coast.  A lot of the original architecture still stands and allowed for some pretty amazing photos.  Thank you to Tara and John for allowing us to spend the day with you and we'll see you in Long Island on 5/23/15!

 Welcome to Maritime College!
