    Oh, but you have. Check the horizon distance for your height of eye on
    the beach. It may well be short of the land you see. I could take noon
    sights from Battery Park looking toward Staten Island. Even standing on
    the wall the horizon is less than 4 miles away.
    I cn see the pilings at the St. George Ferry terminal, but I can't see
    them where they meet the water.
