Yesterday I took a New York Water Taxi from the South Street Seaport around the Hudson. The brisk bay air rushed passed our faces as we gazed upon such sights as the incomplete One World Trade Center, Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Skyline. It was breathtaking. As I popped picture after picture the sounds of the harbor coupled with the visions of history brought a calming sensation I hadn’t felt all day. Manhattan didn’t behold to be a bustling metropolis; the city arose to be serene and almost peaceful in its exorbitant grandeur.
Monolithic sights for everyone to be apprise.
If you take the tour I recommend going directly to the top observation deck and setting up camp on the starboard bow. The view allows for the most photographic opportunities on the hour long express cruise. I also suggest utilizing the black and white imaging on your camera for the Brooklyn Bridge. The prominent structure is by far the most photographed bridge in the city and has a stirring history as well. The essence of the bridge is captured amply in black and white.
FYI, South Street Seaport - the neighborhood where you board the water taxi - is the sight of the Martin Scorsese’s epic Gangs of New York.
Have a great day and God Bless.
