No, that house isn't on the ground on a hill, with trees etc planted in the yard. It's on top of about a 20 story building.
This is our plotter screen, showing us on the East River, headed into Hell Gate. The tide was running against us, and we were fighting a five knot current. Kinda like going up the rapids. We were at 3.9 knots at this point, but we were down to 2.7 knots at one point. I was a little busy navigating Hell Gate to take a picture.
