Rushed back to Financial District after work to meet up with a friend from Cal to take a ferry to Staten Island. The ferry ride is free. We went to the top of the ferry and the view throughout the 30-minute journey is breathtaking. The ferry passes by the Statue of Liberty.
Staten Island is absolutely dead on a Monday night. Half of the restaurants in the “downtown” area were closed. The downtown area consists of a few restaurants and a small park. Unimpressive.
The night was dark on our ferry ride back. The view was even more beautiful as we admired the impressive Manhanttan skyline.
