Today I’m gonna talk about my visit in Staten Island. Today is a beautiful and a windy day in New York city and my plan for today ? I’m going to Staten Island with three of my friends.
First of all : It’s 1 pm and I’m hungry ! So with my friends Arthur and Juliette we take some hot-dogs just in front of the entrance of the ferry.After lunch we wait for Alexane who is late ! She was lost in the subway. After 20minutes of waiting she is finally here and we are ready to take the ferry.If you don’t love crowd don’t take a ferry. I am always afraid of the boat but with this masses it was very hard for me to stay calm ! There is a lot of tourist on board (what a question..)
I am boring and started to have a headache. When suddenly Arthur calls me « Come on Victoire look at the view » I am coming and … What a view ! The statue of the liberty in front of us encircled by the sea it is beautiful and surrealist , she is so big (Yes french people see it only in movie-filmso it is so strange to see it in real) furthermore the statue of the liberty the view from the boat of Manhattan is amazing and beautiful !
After twenty minutes of boat , I can see the soil !!! Saved !! We get out of the boat and started to walk around .. But there is unfortunately nothing to do in Staten Island particulary on Sunday .. But we walked around and we stopped at the 11th september memorial so muche motion even for us « the frenchy » because this tragedy affected us too and all this name on the wall make me sad.
After one hour in Staten Island we decided to go back to Manhattan. Despite of the ferry it was a beautiful and nice day.
