NEW YORK (AP) - The space shuttle Enterprise is making the final leg of its journey to its new Manhattan home.
The prototype space shuttle will travel up the Hudson River from Jersey City, N.J., on Wednesday. It will pass the Statue of Liberty and the World Trade Center site before being hoisted by crane onto the flight deck of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
The Enterprise's original move-in date was Tuesday. Organizers said Monday that bad weather had delayed preparation work.
The shuttle left Kennedy Airport on a barge Sunday morning. It was towed past thousands of spectators to Jersey City.
A spokeswoman for the Intrepid says the shuttle's wingtip sustained light cosmetic damage during the trip when a gust of wind caused it to graze a wood piling.
