Sometimes it’s fun to play tourist in your own city. I (Alexis) grew up on Staten Island, taking a boat back and forth to Manhattan was, quite literally, just part of the daily routine. I definitely take a lot of NYC for granted. It’s fun to see it through Louis’s eyes! Every time we take the ferry from Manhattan he is so excited to go out on the deck, feel the breeze and watch the beautiful skyline shrink away.
#swisstip the Staten Island ferry is free! Don’t let the solicitors standing outside of the terminal trick you into taking a paid boat you don’t need. You get some of the best views of the skyline AND Statue of Liberty from this free boat ride. 🗽🏙
