Was working in Weehawken and had to go to the city for an appointment. Was going to drive since I was so close to the Lincoln Tunnel until I was told about the ferry. 6 minutes to Manhattan with a 15 minute walk into Times Square. Get the app for your phone and buy tickets that way. Show the ticket... More

There is no more sensible way to cross the Hudson any time of day. Free connecting buses all over Manhattan with cheap convenient parking. Who in their right mind would visit The City during heavy traffic times, which means other than 3-5 A.M.?

Went to NYC to visit 911 Memorial. We live in monmouth county and found this was the most pleasant way to arrive in NYC. Have had a life time of experience of making the drive-taking the train and or Path.Its like getting the bonus of all the extra sites to be seen.The Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Jersery City-Liberty Park-the Bridges...

I was in NY in May 2015, I was located in NJ and I used a lot of times the NY Waterway Ferry from New Jersey coast (Port Imperial) to Manhattan... great idea and solution for to avoid the high prices of the Manhattan parkings. Really comfortable , often there is a ferry every 20 minutes more and less ,... More

This ferry is awesome. It's the best way to get to or from New York! I stayed in Weehawken while on a business trip, and I took the ferry every day. It was the best part of my day!

I enjoyed a quick trip to NYC via the Lincoln Harbor water ferry. I was pleasantly surprised when I realized your ticket provides a free bus ride to your destination. I was going to see the WTC and 9/11 Memorial. The bus picked me up for my return to the ferry.

A Saturday trip to NYC was made even more fun because of this experience. We bought our tickets through our free phone app. Parked our car in a safe garage across the street from the dock and go on the ferry (which was on time) without a single glitch. Getting into Weehawken was a bit frustrating, given the archaic nature... More

We tried the ferry because we never had. Good experience; it was a quick trip to Battery Park area. I would personally prefer the bus unless there was traffic, but only because that is cheaper.
