This lighthouse is seen while on the Staten Island ferry.
Actually considered part of New Jersey, you can pass this sailing from lower Manhattan to Staten Island.
The gantry cranes you see in the background are in New Jersey.

Washington statue at Federal Hall and the NY Stock Exchange, Wall Street
Our walk through lower Manhattan took us through the Wall Street area and the level of security was extraordinary. I have not been there in years and it has changed drastically. Every car was stopped and searched and there were police and security guards on every block.
I was glad to see this level of security.

We went to the Coney Island Mermaid Parade yesterday. Great costumes and lots of fun!
This group was protesting the BP oil spill. They were painted in the BP colors of green and yellow and spilled dark corn syrup all over their bodies pretending it was oil.
