Storms Over Manhattan

  The first day my friend Alex and I spent wandering around New York City, the sky was dark, with storm clouds floating ominously above. Our wandering led us to the very tip of Manhattan, where we boarded the free Staten Island Ferry to get a view of the city and to rest our feet. […]
