Staten Island Ferry

On my first trip to Staten Island, NY,
I asked the residents 
what I should be sure to do before leaving.
The unanimous answer 
was to ride the Staten Island Ferry.

Here is the view of NYC from Staten Island.


These are my two daughters.
If you look carefully you can see
The Statue of Liberty
in the background.


A view from the ferry of NYC.

 

Since I boarded the ferry just before sunset, 
 the skies were in state of constant color change.


And of course I could not leave you without seeing Lady Liberty!



More photos from this set can be found here.

Very nice shots. Most I like the first one with this amazing sky!
This would be also very nice post for our *PicStory* running now. So if you like, have a look on it :)

Wow! Such drama in both the buildings and the sky! And your daughters are just stunning.

We like to ride this ferry! We also like to ride the one that stops (is it a different one?) that stops at Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
Someday I will tell you about what happened one day we did that.
Happy MidWeek Blues!

Hi Becky and thanks for the meetup link! It sounds like a great group but I moved back to California last month. So it would be way too far away. :) I'm going to have to visit your blog to see fall colors and winter snow.

Have a great weekend!
