This is a easy and fast transportation that our Manhattan family uses when we decided to meet in one of the great restaurants on the Jersey side of the Hudson river. The boat ride is very fast and starts out from midtown 39th street and it takes just minutes to cross to Jersey. Great view of Manhattan Skyline is a... More

Efficient service from near the hotel to NYC. Pretty regular - every 20 mins. I found $9 expensive for a 1-way journey.

we stayed at Sherston Lincoln a Harbour & bought a $76 weekly ticket (pp) & really made use of the ferry all week. Unfortunately it means you are tied on to catching the last ferry home but overall well worth it to escape Manhattan at the end of a busy day.

It was nice, clean, fast and available ferry. You can see very nice view over new york city, mostly recommended at night.

Expensive but worth the cost to travel from NJ to Manhattan in 3 minutes. Parking garage and access from the light rail. Buses on the Manhattan side meet each ferry and have various routes around the city for free.

This was a relaxing ride across the Hudson river. The ferry picks you up right outside the door of Sheraton Lincoln Harbor so it's very convenient for visiting Manhattan.

Have taken the NY Waterways Ferry for over 25 years, downtown and midtown. On time, clean and most of all SAFE Perfect for woman traveling in the evening, older people going to the theatre and dinner or families. I get to my office in Lower Manhattan faster than my co-workers living on the Upper West Side!

If you are traveling into Mid-town NYC from the Jersey side, this is a very efficient way to go. Plenty of parking available on site. Ferries on a very timely schedule especially at prime times. Once across the river, shuttle buses are waiting to get you to the theater district as well as some other popular stops. Shuttles returning to... More

Although a tad pricey. Takes 8 minutes to cross from Jersey to Manhattan where there are free bus services to run you up and down the city. Very good

We traveled from my daughter's apartment in Weehawken by ferry to the New York City transit authority bus terminal. It was very easy, cheap and fairly fast. The ferry was clean and warm. It served a purpose, but I wouldn't make the trip for the adventure.
