2017 Staten Island maritime views January 11, 2017 SAMir Farag With a new year upon us, we will continue to feature more new shots of Staten Island’s various maritime waterfront activity. After a snowy weekend and overcast to rainy beginning of the week, the sun has returned, lighting up Staten Island’s northshore waterfront on this mid-January morning. From Bay St. Landing, a sunrise view of the pilings near Miller’s Launch with the Verrazano–Narrows Bridge in the distance. Late afternoon sun glistening off the Norwegian Breakaway Cruise Liner ( art on the ship’s hull by Peter Max) in the distance behind some small working barges. One of the best and most enjoyable places to watch maritime activity is from the restaurant Blue. Located at 1115 Richmond Terrace on Staten Island (across from Snug Harbor), Blue features a great, wide panoramic view of busy ship activity on the Kill Van Kull.
