A lot better than being in Hackensack, I know of a good spot next to the NJ Transit Lackawanna train station that also serves as a ferry hub. Lots of activity in the area.

I actually have a QSL card for contacting the USS Ling over the radio.  It's even got its own amateur radio callsign:  NX2ND.

NXND was the Ling's original US Navy callsign.

Hard to believe it was 16 years ago now.  Hopefully they can fix her, get her floating, and over to Hoboken.

99-year-old World War II Navy veteran Joe Mongeli?  That's one way to keep the Hoboken Farmer's Market safe.

I've been inside of it as a kid.  Made me never want to be in a submarine for real.

Good. It was fine until some hipster urban explorers opened hatches stole artifacts and let it sink. Don't know if they went to jail.

It was pretty cool. I had a birthday party there as a kid. Really hope it finds a good home...
