We got this as part of a deal - 3 attractions for $76 dollars. The price on our receipt says it was originally $31 which I'm glad I didn't pay. You can do the Staten Island Ferry for free which I wish I had done instead or even a trip over to the Statue itself.

As a first time tourist in New York, who wanted to see the sights, and learn a number of tidbits about Manhattan, the water taxi was a bargain. The daily pass was a very handy thing, as we wanted to get off and see a few things during the day. The tour guide, Patrick, was very knowledgeable and had a... More

We used this as a means of getting from the Intrepid to Battery Park. It's part of the NYC pass so if you have time you can hop on and off and see quite a bit of the city. The on board guide gave some great information of what you see and the history of the city

Went on the water taxi yesterday and it was amazing. The views were spectacular and the tour guide on board was very good. Would recommend this trip. Plus it stops by the statue of liberty to allow photo taking opportunities.

Enjoyed this cruise. Very cold windy night, but able to go out and take pics then come back into warm heated area. Top deck was available also. Beautiful views of the city from the water!

We just went to NY for the weekend last weekend and decided to take a water taxi for the first time. The ride itself was quite nice and there was a man narrating the area. He requested tips at several ports. When we tried to pay with credit cards for the water taxi, we were told to pay in cash,... More

Great way to see NY, NJ and surroundings by water. You will see what you can not from land. Not expensive and fun thing to do.

As a tourist we had this on our list of things to do, so I'm pleased we did it. We took the Subway from midtown to York Street in Brooklyn and then walked down to the Ferry Port and then got the water taxi over to downtown. It cost only $4 and took less than 7-8 minutes, but it's a... 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.
