Being that I spend so much time in the city, I am constantly looking for cheap things to do. The Staten Island Ferry is great because it is free! The ferry travels between Whitehall St. in lower Manhattan and St. George in Staten Island on the hour and every half hour throughout the day. Many passengers use the ferry to commute to work everyday. The ferry is not just for residents though. The 5 mile journey takes about 25 minutes and provides passengers with outstanding views of the Statue of Liberty, the New York Harbour, and the city skyline.

Address: St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island, Whiteh
Directions: St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island, Whitehall Ferry Terminal in Manhattan - easy access by the subway. Take the 1 to South Ferry (all the way to the end of the line) or the W to Whitehall St. South Ferry.
