Ferry to NYC

At the suggestion of someone here on the broad, my husband and I took a ferry to NYC and walked up 1st Avenue to Dr Russo's office. It was actually a very nice way into the city. We boarded the ferry in Atlantic Highlands, NJ and got off the ferry on 35st. It's a bit of a walk but the blocks are short. This would also work if you are going to Memorial Sloan Kettering on 67st.

  • That suggestion was by me. 

    That suggestion was by me.  The only way to travel as far as I am concerned.  For me, there is something cathartic about taking the ferry across the bay, under the Brooklyn Bridge and up the river to 35th Street.  I was born by the river, and grew up near the beach, and lived near the beach and by a river most of my life. I love the walk up 1st Ave to 67th.  That side and part of NYC does not feel like the rest of NYC.  It is quieter and has a interesting feel to it with the United Nations, Dangerfield's (the Comedy place) and some interesting restaurants. A FDNY friend of mine offerred to let me park at the fireouse closest to MSKCC.  After driving in and out once, never again.

    Hope yours and your husband's days was a good one.

    Thank you for the suggestion.

    Thank you for the suggestion. We really enjoyed the ferry. It was so cool to go under the Brooklyn Bridge. I would agree being on the water was cathartic. Going up 1st Avenue is much nicer then going across town. All in all a good day. :)
