Mayflower II Arrives in New York in 1957

Yesterday, we posted about the renewal and reconstruction of the Mayflower II at Mystic Seaport Museum. Here is a short video of the ship in 1957 arriving in New York on its maiden voyage across the Atlantic. I love the juxtaposition of the 17th century ship and the blimp and the helicopters flying above it.

    I was 9 years old at the time and remember it well. The voyage also introduced me to Alan Villiers who captained the ship.
