B is for

Where's this quaint-looking fishing village? New England? Long Island?

Nope, it's right here in Manhattan on the Hudson River--the 79th St. Boat Basin.

There's actually people who live there year-round in houseboats! But it's also a working boat basin where recreational urban sailors are able to dock and store their boats.

It's one of our favorite places. In the summer, hubster and I frequently eat at a restaurant located at the boat basin as we take in the views.

Great pictures! And the boats nestled right up next to skyscrapers. Imagine living there.
