From a strategic location by the Verrazzanno-Narrows Bridge connecting Staten Island to Brooklyn, marine traffic is always active with ships arriving to departing the various terminals in the New York City area (Port Elizabeth in New Jersey, Brooklyn, Manhattan Cruise Terminal etc.) A great place to relax and enjoy the views, but also to feel the pulse of the commercial activity in the area...
Sometime earlier this year, pictures of a suezmax tanker undertaking lightering in the Upper New York Harbor and then departing, and the arrival of a containership and pure car carrier vessel, seen under the Verrazzanno-Narrows Bridge and against the Lower Manhattan skyline, the distinctive One World Trade Center and, yes, the Statue of Liberty (can be seen behind MT 'Samsara' pictures when departing).
