We took the subway to the lower end of Manhattan to visit the 9/11 memorial. Then we caught the water taxi at battery park to go back to midtown. The view from the taxi on the water, the information from the crew, and the fact that they now go right by the statue make it a must for seeing the... More

The tour was great - not too heavily informative, the tour guide was funny. The views were absolutely stunning. We got right up to the Statue of Liberty. Get your selfie sticks out for this tour!!

Being a seaport it's always a good idea to get out on the water and this provides a two-for-one approach. If you get the All Day Pass, as I did, you can hop-on-and-off all day, plus you get the added benefit of the tour part of the service. There's a guide who talks all the points, giving history and relevance,... More

We took the water taxi from Manhattan to Brooklyn, and even though it took a while to get there, we loved it! We were able to take a lot of great pictures, and it was an inexpensive way to travel! I highly recommend it!!

Zepher cruise Statue of Liberty Express left from Pier 16 at South St. Seaport It was a perfect May day the city skyline was very beautiful. The cruise director pointed out all the landmarks and their history . A bit pricey but enjoyable .Tip : If you find a Groupon like I did it will save you some money.

We went from one end to the other and came back. It was enjoyable and we were able to see the New York skyline along with multiple piers since there were quite a few stops. Sadly, I didn't keep a log of the various stops and wish I would have. The price is reasonable and well worth the money. The... More

I took the water taxi when I was in Charleston and was thrilled to find the NYC version! This water taxi has 7 stops. You pay one flat fee and you can ride it all day, getting on and off as you want. Some days there are two boats running so they arrive every 1/2 hour but some days there... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
