Question to New Yorkers...

I am planning a visit to the site this Saturday. We want to take the Staten Island Ferry and walk up from there. Is it likely I will find parking at the terminal on Staten Island, as it's not a workday?

Sorry for this somewhat off-topic post.

If I had a dime for every time I have heard this, I could buy ALL of NYC. Its height is fine, this is about restoring the skyline, not a mine is bigger then your's contest.

it's still $5 in the lot i believe but on saturday just drive a short way up the street (towards manhattan if you will) and there are always spaces on the street for free, we do that all the time. The best deal in the city, free parking and a free boat ride while looking at the greatest skyline in the world, have fun, its an awesome take

Yeah, if you take 80 from San Francisco then just look for the tallest building in Lower Manhattan.

In the picture that Otie posted of Midtown Manhattan, it's scary how close White Plains appears directly behind the Empire even though it's 25 miles away..

you won't be able to see 1WTC from 80, it ends before the GW and you cant see Lower Manhattan until you get ON the bridge and at that point it's 95

You can see the building from Morris county 31 miles to the west, from the tappan zee bridge, and from Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ which is 45 miles south

I know that but on 80 the few miles before the bridge you cant see anything down there or midtown even because of the topography. I am aware that at certain vista points its visible from really far away, i've see the pics on here, but he was , i thought, talking about on 80 from the GSP to the GWB
