We did this instead of paying to go to the statue of liberty because we had been advised to see it this way as it's very expensive and not really worth the trip, lovely views of manhattan and lady liberty! And a free day out! Very nice port and lovely big ferry! Very enjoyable experience. Ignore the people outside who... More

If you like seeing amazing views of downtown Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty you definitely need to take a trip on the Staten Island Ferry. The best thing about it........it's FREE! Not many things in NYC are free so if you're looking for an alternative to the extremely expensive ferry rides that are offered around the city for upwards... More

It is hard to beat this frequent free ferry ride for enjoying the NYC skyline as well as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis island. Our late afternoon ride even included a magnificent sunset.

It's a great way to see the skyline of New York and the statue of liberty. It doesn't cost a thing and you are able to go to the island and return immediately on the next ferry. I would recommend the ferry if you have time!!!

We travelled with commuters during the evening peak hour, enjoying a pretty winter sunset. This city is so well organised and the trip over and back is a fun thing to do for some affordable sightseeing, allowing a good view of the Statue of Liberty from the decks and inside if you don't have time for a full visit to...

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to see the Statue of Liberty then the Staten Island Ferry is for you. You won't get up close and personal but you can get some great photos of the statue and the NYC skyline. It's free and worth the 1 hour round trip.
