We recently took the ferry across the East River to the Brooklyn area known as DUMBO: Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Basically, this area is along the waterfront, between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges.
There were some good sites to see from the boat.
But the ferry quickly became extremely crowded, cutting off the views.
Once off the boat we were able to take in the Manhattan skyline, the Staten Island Ferry, Statue of Liberty, and all those other iconic-type views.
It was a hot and sunny day, and lots of folks were seeking the shade.
Are the parks and public spaces you show fairly new, or just beautifully maintained? It's inspiring to see these areas developed for the use and pleasure of the residents. In the first picture after the water splash ones, what is the white building?
You really made some wonderful photographs on this trip -- beautifully framed cityscapes, fun candids, great captures of foliage & water. I particularly love the picture with the Statue of Liberty, the boat, & the helicopter.
