I’m one of the ships that lives in Sheepshead bay.

At morning, I woke up by the fresh baked waffle, seeing people arrived in day.

Then I spent my time looking at who came here.

People were talking, smiling, laughing, waiting for what will happen at night.

I carried them towards the ocean, for fishing or partying.

Listening them dancing or singing in my body.

I love my neighborhood.
