Pier A


I took this photo on Monday, January 15 while visiting New York with the Joes. We were at Battery Park’s Castle Clinton National Monument (formerly Castle Garden) waiting for the ferry to Liberty Island. The photo shows all that remains of Pier A and the 1886 grand marine firehouse.

What a great photo

That's a very historic site--before Ellis Island was built as an immigrant recieving station, that's where new citizens and distinguished foreign visitors were processed to enter the country.

Rick's right--that's a powerfully composed photo.

the thing about that photo is that we were standing outside waiting for the ferry, in the january drizzle. i just pointed and shot. gotta love digital cameras :)

it looked like there might be some rehab work going on. i hope that's the case. it's a lovely spot.
