Being used to Greek beaches, the ocean is always impressive to me. I would never voluntarily swim in the Atlantic, but on the day we headed out to Coney Island, there were plenty of people enjoying the water. Unfortunately, it started raining and we had to go back to Manhattan.
Later on that same day, we took the ferry to Staten Island. The ferry is free and is mainly used by commuters. We had good timing because the sun was setting and everything looked beautiful.
Going back to the city...
The skyscraper that is lit in the colors of the American flag stands where the Twin Towers used to be.
