Staten Island Ferry

One of these two pictures is of the Staten Island Ferry. I'm not sure which it is, since they both proclaim in big letters to be the Staten Island Ferry. I'll leave it to you to figure out which it is. Now what I will do for you is give you some advice. If you ever go to NYC, the Staten Island Ferry is free. You can ride it from the bottom of Manhattan to the top of Staten Island for free. That includes both directions, out and back. You have to get off the boat at the far end, and you might have trouble getting back on the same boat to return, but a few minutes on Staten Island can be a good thing. Free! Did I mention it's free? And you get great views of Lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, too. Oh, and two little lighthouses, and the Brooklyn Bridge, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, you can see it all from the Staten Island Ferry!
