A Trip on the Staten Island Ferry

The best deal in New York City is the Staten Island Ferry. The trip is free and you get fantastic views of the city and the Statue of Liberty. I took the ferry about or so before sunset. It’s a little crowded on the New York side so allow yourself a little extra time in the event you have to wait for a second ferry. Here are a few photos that capture the journey.

Here you see the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg in the the distance. It’s the BMW.
