this field trip to Staten Island on the ferry was a refresher for me; I have not ride on this ferry in about 3-4 years, normally my commuting there would be by car. Been on this ferry was a pleasant one; it gave us the opportunity to live as a tourist, for that moment and enjoyed what they normally enjoyed of the City. In fact, riding on the ferry and capturing the picturesque viewing of the Atlantic Ocean, as well seeing the sights of Governor Island and statue of liberty was awesome one. on our way back into lower Manhattan, we done some short stops to the, Shrine of Saint Elizabeth and Seton first American born Saint, land mark of New York Watson House, which the Roman Catholic church of  our Lady of the  Rosary, was built in the 1800. Next was the Fraunces Tavern, which is a national register of Historic place, built in 1719. Our final stop was to the charging bull, this was a symbol of gift in the 1980’s, when the financial recession, hit the United States, this was raging bull was a symbol of hope and prosperity.
