Bottom Tip of Manhattan

I have out-of-town visitors this week so we went to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal to take the ferry to Staten Island, of course. This photo was taken a few minutes after the ferry lhad eft the Manhattan terminal. You can see the skyline of the bottom tip of Manhattan Island here.

So how has your week been?

Great shot, Ming. Were your out-of-town visitors suitably impressed with this view?
The week's been busy, busy, busy—I could have used a nice ride on the SI ferry. Hope you enjoyed it!

Wonderful cityscape, Ming! I just saw an illustrated map of NYC so this actually makes a bit of sense to me now :)

Quiet week. Monday was a legal holiday, then yesterday and today too because of the Easter Triduum. Getting a lot of home organizing done finally.

The family must have loved that. I haven't been on the ferry in years....Staten Island may as well be on another planet.

I haven't been on the ferry in ages. I only went once, to the Island and back.

TGIF Ming! Hope you're doing well. :-)

I really like that curved building. its like a column of captured sky.

My week has been busy, which is good - it means I still have a job!
