‘Overheard on the Staten Island Ferry’ on Tumblr: Our favorite lines

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The 25-minute ride on the Staten Island Ferry means much to the average Manhattan commuter.

But for one blogger, what’s actually said and seen on the boat is worth its weight in Internet gold.

The Tumblr page “Overheard on the Staten Island Ferry” contains some of the finest phrases to ever be heard while aboard the vessel. In addition, pictures taken on the ferry appear on the blog, as do images apparently captured during the operator’s commute to the St. George Ferry Terminal.

We briefly scanned the page to grab a few of our favorites. The first batch are text posts embedded from the actual blog, while the bottom series features some photos and a grateful reader’s comment.
