The Staten Island Ferry, New York, New York

We took this ferry every day to New York City while staying in Staten Island.  What a view of the city as you cross the mouth of the Hudson River! We took this picture from the outside deck of our ferry as another one passed.  While the daylight rides were beautiful, the evening trips were even better.  The skyline twinkled with lights across the water as we slowly traveled past the Status of Libery lit up against the night sky.  It is also a great way to experience the Manhattan skyline in a quiet moment away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets.  An added plus is that the ferries run every 15 minutes like clock work and there is no charge for using the ferry system.
