Staten Island Ferry
thinking this photo of the staten island ferry looks familiar, you're right. i jumped the gun and included it in my orange post, but it's my favorite, so please forgive me.

Staten Island Ferry
i wonder if these two planned on coordinating their shirts? i waited for everyone to clear the deck on the ferry for the second shot.

the southern tip of manhattan from the staten island ferry, which is free and a lot of fun. for the best views of the statue of liberty, stay on the starboard (right) side of the stern (back) going to staten island, port (left) side of the bow (front) on the return trip.

The Sphere
the sphere by fritz koenig survived the attack on the world trade center and is on display in battery park.

these three weren't together, but they should have been.

The Elevated Acre
take the escalator up two flights and you'll find the elevated acre.

The Elevated Acre
i missed the best shot of the brooklyn bridge because some-body (scott) was pointing at the heliport, which is really loud by the way. no problem, this is a very cool garden and i'll go back.

good luck to everyone in the nyc marathon tomorrow - go runners go! my brother was in the race about 9 times or was it 11? something crazy! happy weekend!

xo, cindy

ps the video today is from the girls with glasses show and features their tour of nyc set to the classic song downtown by petula clark.

HAHA Lovely pictures.. It's always funny when you see people wearing practically the same shirt. I always think I must have not got the memo. :)

Happy Weekend! Is NYC starting to get decked out for holidays?

You can post that orange ferry as often as you want and I will not squawk! I love it!

Christine Clemmensen from Denmark has done a gorgeous series of New York posts from her recent trip - if you haven't seen them, I think you'd enjoy her pictures! Plus she's a delight!
