Does anyone have any tips for watching the Parade of Ships? I was planning on Battery Park, mostly because of the great views and the availability of restrooms at Castle Clinton. But how about Riverside Park? There must be restrooms there. Or maybe I'll start at the Intrepid and walk south? Planning on packing a picnic and staying as long as I can keep a 12 year old interested. I know viewing is available from NJ, which would make for great photos w/ Manhattan in the background, but I think we would be better off viewing from Manhattan as we can quickly do something else if we get bored or thunderstorms/rain.
