After lunch with a friend from Switzerland I decided to go down to the Southernmost tip (The Battery) of Manhattan and take the Staten Island ferry. Back in the 1970s I used to live on Staten Island. The easiest way for me to get to work was to take the ferry. I don’t think I’ve been back there since about 1978 and it’s certainly changed a lot: much more lively and seemingly catering to tourists much more. I shouldn’t be surprised since the Staten Island Ferry must be the best bargain in New York. It doesn’t cost anything and you get a nice boat ride across the harbor with great views of the Statue of Liberty and the downtown Manhattan skyline.
