"Staten Island Ferry" Staten Island & Staten Island Ferry Tip by Jozzzef

This is a ferry mostly used by commuters. It is free! It offers fine views on the skyline, Liberty Island and the areas around Manhattan. It passes really close to the statue of liberty so it can safe you a lot of money if you don't absolutely positively want to climb the statue. Also don't be surprised to see ocean liners pass you. It makes a nice cheap cruise. To go to Staten Island and back takes approximatly one hour. Look for the terminal next to the tourist boats.
