On a very blustery morning. Walking the Brooklyn Bridge Park this morning and took this shot of Manhattan across the East River.
The Ikea Water Taxi runs from the pier adjacent to the Ikea store in Red Hook to the old Fulton Fish Market Pier on the east side of Manhattan ( Pier 11 ). The views from the taxi are incredible as you cross the East River.
I think the artwork relates to the FDR Four Freedoms Memorial Park that is currently under construction on the southend of Roosevelt Island.
The yellow-checkerboard building is interesting. These views are from Brooklyn Heights.
