The highlight of my trip so far, has not been the cheap but delicious iced-coffee from Dunkin’ Doughnuts. Instead, a view of Manhattan I’ll never forget…
Craving an experience I would remember for a lifetime, I starting searching the net for ‘unique views of Manhattan‘ and ‘Things you have to experience when in NYC‘. “I may never be here again” I told myself, I have to soak it all up. So after discovering information online about the Staten Island Ferry, I head straight to Whitehall Street Metro station (I took the W line all the way down from Queens) Then hopped onto the ferry, for free!
‘The Staten Island Ferry is a free passenger ferry shuttle operated by the New York City Department of Transportation. It runs 5.2 miles in New York Harbour between the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Staten Island. The ferry operates 24/7.’
If you come to New York, you have to experience this. The feeling of freedom you get being out on the water, the fresh, clean air and getting a new perspective on Manhattan.
