More of Seein' the Sites

If you're ever in the concrete jungle around lunchtime and you can't find me in my office, I am probably up here.  I love this little building on the pier.  I normally walk up those stairs on the right, and you can see the water in between, it makes me a little jittery!


View to the left, South Street Seaport.
Plenty of tourists and shoppers and kiddies mulling about!

Dirty old boat!

Brooklyn Bridge.  Say hello Brooklyn!

View to the right.  Nothing really special, except
way in the distance in the bridge from Brooklyn to Staten Island.

I'm not the only one who has found this spot!

  3. Is this near your work place? That's just so awesome. You must enjoy that sight every time you go to eat your lunch. I would love to feel what it's like to eat in such a pretty pier.

    Huggies and Cheese,

  26. What a great place to relax and have lunch or a break from work. That dirty old boat looks like a sail boat. Wonder what it looks like with it sails up. So is the river the East River?
    Thanks for being a friend

  29. Great pictures! Love that last shot - lots of open space which I don't usually associate with NYC.

    Your pal, Pip
