"Staten Island Ferry" Staten Island and Staten Island Ferry Tip by rmdw

  The view from the Staten Island Ferry
by rmdw

Taking the Staten Island ferry is definitely a Must Do activity for new visitors to NYC. I've actually done it on two different trips and enjoyed the 2nd time as much as the 1st!

The trip for foot passengers is absolutely free. For cars it's only $3.00 each way.

The trip provides a glorious view of New York harbour and the NYC skyline. Highly recommended!

Address: Subway: Trains N, R, Q & W to Whitehall St.
Directions: Very southern tip of Manhattan
