I walked up along the East River to Gracie Mansion - and, just above it, the NYC Ferry at 90th St.

You know I love New York, but sometimes I discover new adventures

Of course, there are other cruise boats here in the city, but NYC Ferry is a charming way to commute and so affordable.

Looking back upriver on my cruise on the NYC ferry from E. 90th Street on down to Wall Street, and across to Dumbo.

Yes, this is what Manhattan can look like from Brooklyn!


Yes, visitors on the "beach" - in DUMBO - enjoying the winter's freshness, and dreaming, perhaps, of the spring to come. 

In Dumbo - admiring our favorite sight: the Brooklyn Bridge
