Manhattan Monday 48 – East River Ferry

The East River Ferry runs back and forth from East 34th Street, Manhattan, to the foot of Wall Street. It was a cheap and easy way to get downtown from the Pod 39 Hotel (on East 39th!)  It’s a hovercraft and does it ever move! Makes it rather hard to take photos as you’re hanging onto your seat, or the rail, to avoid being pitched onto the deck.

The pictures were taken from north to south. Click on each photo to see a larger version.

The first photo includes the UN and the Chrysler buildings; the second adds the Empire State Building which is also in the centre of the third.  The fourth picture shows the foot of Wall Street on the left with tall, masted ships in the foreground. The last picture features the helicopter port on the East River which is next to the Wall Street ferry terminal.
