Fleet Week in New York City 2005 (continued) -- the Staten Island edition.

I was off to Staten Island (via the Ferry from Manhatten in case your wondering) to visit the Stapleton Piers. I took the MTA Staten Island Railway to the Stapleton Station to visit the naval ships part of Fleet Week in New York City. As you can see from the pictures below it was a great day weatherwise! There were ships from Canada, United States, France and Pakistan at this area of the week long event. For some reason I mainly stuck to photographing the Canadian naval ships. Perhaps that is because once you have seen one of these it is like seeing them all. Any way, here are the pictures:
