my favorite tourist trap...


One of my favorite things to do when we have guests to NY is to take the Staten Island Ferry...Especially at sunset.
There is nothing like floating on the water as it turns pink with light...watching the power of the Manhattan skyline recede, the barges pass, the cranes silhouetted against the sky and then as the cool darkness of night descends watching the glisten and twinkle of the lights of the city and bridges coming toward us as we return.

This is the moment where I am convinced that NY looks just like the emerald city from the wizard of oz...
our own little emerald of a place....
