New York City
|The Staten Island Ferry. This whole area is under construction, so although you can't see it, the big sign in the background only reads "N Island Ferry."
|Destination in sight!
|The walk down to the statue's ferry from the subway follow the riverfront as it dumps into the Upper Bay. That's Jersey City in the back, there.
|Arrival at Liberty Island.
|The statue from the side.
|That's the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, which happes to be I-278. It connects Staten Island with Brooklyn.
|Up close with Lady Liberty.
|You can't go all the way up there anymore, you are only allowed to go until the base of the statue ends. The green part is off-limits.
|July 4, 1776.
|I enjoy this picture. I am glad I took it.
|One last view of the statue.
|A closeup of some Manhattan buildings.
|Although it's hard to see from the statue without zoom, my camera was able to capture the Empire State Building.
|Downtown New York.
|To the left is where the Twin Towers used to stand.
|A ferry is headed back to the city.
|The Brooklyn Bridge as seen from the statue.
|Back on land, we pass the American Stock Exchange.
|Wide view of the WTC Site.
|This construction driveway entrance was not here in March 2004, when I last passed through the city.
|Historical signs are hung on the gates around the site.
|The names of those who died on Sept. 11, 2001.
|Sticking the camera lens through the gates, I could get this picture of the gaping hole.
|The cross made out of the beams that held up the WTC.
|It appears that not all of the damage has been repaired on the surrounding buildings.
|This building is completely covered in mesh, and the bare beams can be seen. I think this one is uninhabitable.
