The USS Intrepid, an aircraft carrier and iconic Manhattan museum, returned to its West Side berth today after a two-year, $115 million refurbishment.
What if the ship was adopted for fine art shows, traveling to different continents, ie; a show in Africa about New York art, or a show in Dubai about fighter jets.
Or, how about a wholesale grocery store? The ship picks the meat in Argentina, stops over in Chile to pick the vegetables and fruits, and sells them in Long Beach California, or, crosses the Panama Canal, and, yes, you guessed it, cheaper food for New Yorkers, or, turn around, and New Orleans. Get your fill of fresh refrigerated okras... Gumbo!
There are a lot more of Intrepid, Iowa, Wichita, Wabash...
Or, the ship is available for rent to entrepreneurs who are interested in direct sales. Go to Japan, pick up some previously owned cars and of course destination is Los Angeles Harbor. Save, save, save...
Intrepid I love what you do for me!
