The Staten Island Ferry is FREE,  you can get a cold beer and a hot dog for under $10bucks, the 5 mile, 25 minute ride provides a majestic view of New York Harbor including a close pass to the Statue of Liberty.   A warm summer afternoon.. ahhh

    awbachert,

     

    Wow, have never done that and really did not know much about it.  That sounds like an amusement park attraction and experiencing a beer and hot dog while enjoying it!  Thanks for the information and post!

        Pluto,

         

        Yes, I do enjoy a good hot dog from time to time!  Just got back from London and the first place I went to was Steak n' Shake for a double burger.  Can't get them in Europe.  Just for the record, here is that photo (Behind Publicis Drugstore NorthWest corner of the C-E), just  had this for lunch and duck for dinner!  What a day.  Maybe will take the family there next month for a little of that "Home town" feeling!

            I've been to steak n' shake many times, but don't remember a happy hour.  What do they do different then?  are burgers half price?  Or what?  by the way, try the chili 5-way.

              The shakes are all discounted from 2 until 4 pm and 2am - 4am (I think).

                Happy Hour shakes....now that's a new one! Don't think the 2-4 AM will work for me. If I'm up then...I'm drinking something a little stronger.....

            By the way it's about time to start "Happy Hour" and will have one for you, and I am not at Steak n' Shake.

          A hot dog in Paris...I will now always have a reason to chuckle.

      you can also ride the length of the Island on the Subway, an interesting ride, and back again too.

    I've driven across Staten Island too many times on a hot summer day. WHOA!!! The landfills can get quite ripe. I like the idea of the ferry, though.
