Liberty Island Ferry

More New York photos after a brief hiatus. 

 Merchant Mariner' Memorial at Battery Park.  
"This sculpture at NYC's Battery Park is a hauntingly powerful depiction of sailors drowning after a Nazi U-Boat attacked their American merchant ship during World War II."

 The statue and Liberty Island from the ferry landing.

 Cities with water and bridges are the best.  Seattle, Portland.  New York.

 Central Railroad of New Jersey terminal.  Before the tunnels, train lines ended here and passengers were ferried to Manhattan.

 Manhattan as viewed from Liberty Island.

 Some things turn out to be smaller and less grand when you finally see them in person.  Not so the Statue of Liberty.

 Verrazano-Narrows Bridge from Liberty Island.

But . . .
Statue of Liberty Barbies?  Really?
