There are multiple IKEAs in the NYC area. My friend, MG, lives on Manhattan. She told me there's a ferry from the piers to IKEA Brooklyn and we would take the ferry.
An IKEA FERRY? Who has ever heard of such a thing?! We walked to the docks and I managed to snap some pictures of the boats there. MG really liked this little tug boat:
Look how small it is compared to the neighboring boats!
We walked towards Pier 11 and waited for the ferry. I really liked these wooden columns bound together with metal wires. I also really liked the view from the docks.
The ride over was pleasant too. We saw cranes that reminded us of giraffes:
a Snapple plant:
the Statue of Liberty in the distance:
and a fantastic view of the city:
We ended up eating dinner there and then shopping until it closed. During dinner, I saw a bunch of school buses. I'm not sure why, but it made me excited and I had to take a picture:
I told MG that she needs to take the Ikea Ferry at least every month. :) She agreed.
