After we arrived in Staten Island on the free ferry we got a bite to eat and headed back in the direction of the ferry terminal. It was about 9:30pm and we heard a loud boom and noticed fireworks in the sky. It was hard to tell exactly where they were coming from but we headed in their direction, getting lost in an outdoor mall area before finding some stairs down to the waterfront. The fireworks were ending but we got a good glimpse of the last few being lit off close to a sports stadium. I’m pretty sure the fireworks had to do with the sporting event being held there, but I’m not positive. It was a nice surprise to see them as we stood there near the Hudson with the NYC skyline off in the distance.
