Distancing and approaching. Disembarkment at Lower Manhattan Terminal. While the film is constantly jumping backwards and forwards in time, finally showing the empty ramp before and after the crowd, the camera, not being allowed to disembark, keeps on zooming in, trying not to lose the contact to the crowd that slowly disappears. The last passenger returns. The invisible ferry behind the camera is ready to leave again.
