On the Ferry

We now take a break from our political coverage to shop for motorcycles on Staten Island, getting there via bicycle and the Staten Island Ferry.

Tugboats are delightful.

It was cold out (low 30s, windy) but I needed to clear my head and burn some calories. After around fifteen minutes of cycling I warmed up and it was comfortable.

I have so many questions about this artwork.

I don’t think I was on the ferry at all in 2020, so it was good to be back. Crowds were sparse and every other seat was marked-off for social distancing. There were also dedicated bike seating areas with racks, which I don’t recall ever seeing before.

Lady Liberty, ever inspiring.

The ferry always moves faster than I think it will for a chunky-looking vessel. Passing the Statue of Liberty is always thrilling nonetheless.

Always a thumbs up for the Staten Island Ferry.
