New York City - 5

....continued from New York City - 4

After walking a bit around the 'Financial District', we planned on taking a ferry to 'Staten Island', look around a bit and come back to Manhattan. We didn't plan on going to 'Ellis Island' or 'Statue Of Liberty', as it was a bit late and we didnt have enough time, to do all the things. Also, the ferry to Staten Island, passes close to the 'Statue Of Liberty' and so, there was no use of going to 'Statue Of Liberty'. Also, the entry into the statue was prohibited/restricted temporarily. So, we made the right decision, to take the ferry to 'Staten Island'. Also, we were more interested in visiting all the boroughs of NYC.

As the ferry rode away from Manhattan, we had glorious views of '(Lower) Manhattan skyline'. Below is a video, that I shot, from the ferry:

After that, we reached 'Staten Island' and took the train, dropped off at some station and walked around a bit. Staten Island is a borough of NYC, located totally on an island and is separated from 'New Jersey' , by 2 riverbeds and from the rest of New York, by the New York Bay. When you visit this place, you feel like being in a small, typical US town, but not a hectic city. It is said to be the most suburban and least populated boroughs of NYC. Below are some pics from Staten Island:

After walking around for a while, we headed back to the train station and then, to the ferry station, to take the ferry back to Manhattan. We planned in such a way, that we wanted to go back to Manhattan, when its getting dark and so, we can have great views of NYC, at night time. Below is a pic, that I shot, when we just took off, from Staten Island:
