Scenes from the Staten Island Ferry

So now we've officially seen the Statue of Liberty. It is indeed a lovely shade of green. We took a budget trip to the financial district on the tip of Manhattan--everything we did was free, except for the subway fare. Now, that free ferry is tricksy. You can't really make a round trip, though most people are just on it to get a good look at Manhattan and the statue. Once you get to Staten Island, you gotta exit the ferry, make a big loop at the dock, and then re-board. Still, it was pretty awesome. And breezy!

There she is!

As you can see, it was windy. An anonymous bridge in the background. Brooklyn bridge?
