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