Take me out to the ball game: The Getting There

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey

On Sunday we had tickets to the final Yankees game in old Yankee Stadium. Rick had also booked us on the Yankee Clipper, the ferry that travels around the point of Manhattan and drops you off right at Yankee Stadium. They say that half the fun is getting there, and it was.

We boarded the ferry at 6:00 p.m. from Port Imperial in Weehawken. It was beautiful weather for a cruise.

The clouds and the skyline were fabulous!

We made a stop at Hoboken to pick up more passengers. I liked the old style architecture of the Lackawanna terminal. I didn’t get to see much of it but I think this is a place I need to go back to and get some photos. Built in 1907, it’s one of the oldest railroad terminals still existing.

As we pulled away from the pier the sun was starting to set.

The reflections off the buildings from the setting sun were hard to resist.

They looked like lighthouse beacons.

As we rounded the point, the sun was pretty much gone. Here the Staten Island ferry pulls away from us and the Lady Liberty can be seen in the distance on the left.

Under the Brooklyn Bridge we go!

Night falls on the city.

And we finally arrive at our destination. I hope you enjoyed the ride!

Such a fun adventure…and to think this is only the start of it (at least for us!)

Sweet, enjoyment always seems to come from a ferry ride.

WOW! Fabulous photos!
