Day 46

There are hundreds–and probably close to thousands–of food carts all around the city.  One of my favorites sits by the ferry and serves halal food.  While I don’t get it very often, sometimes you just need to not have to worry about what’s for dinner and get a lamb & rice plate to eat on the ferry ride home–think of it as a floating picnic!!


Day 44

Nothing beats a gorgeous morning on the ferry, complete with an escort from the US Coast Guard!

Who knew this was such a lovely boat ride?  Gorgeous views of lower Manhattan, a close up of Lady Liberty, salty sea air, and the option to drink as much beer as possible in 20ish minutes.   19 more words

I actually enjoy riding the ferry.  It’s relaxing, you get great views of the city, you see the Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island, and Statue of Liberty, and you get to drink beer.   14 more words
