Taking the Ferry and Taking in the View!

One way to get from Staten Island to Manhattan and vice versa is to take the free ferry. It's a nice ride with lots to see.

The boat is quite large, it can fit lots and lots of people. On this particular day, it was not too cold so I decided to sit on the top deck in the open air. It was chilly once the boat started moving.

I was relieved to see so many life jackets above my head!

I still feel sad when I look over to Downtown Manhattan and see the Twin Towers missing. Will never forget that day.

However, lower Manhattan is a beautiful view! Especially from a boat!

The best view of all is this pretty lady! One of these days I have to actually go and visit her.

Yup, you can't beat "free" boat ride and an awesome view!

NYC is amazing. Some of us cats have visited there when we go to the big cat show at MSG. We went on a ferry once in Washington state, it was cool!
