A free ferry to see Lady Liberty? What more do you need? The ferry over the water is fun, fast and the best view of the statue. And unlike many things in NYC, it is free. Even on an overcast rainy Sunday, it was one...More

A free and easy way to see the statue of liberty. Takes about 1 hour to cross to Staten island and return.
Perfect for us to get some great pictures.

This is a great option to see the Statue of Liberty and amazing views of Manhattan if you’re on a budget like we were.
The ferry’s run really regularly and are completely free. I would recommend riding out of rush hour times as we went...More
The ferry is a free service, and runs half-hourly each way during most hours, with higher frequency during peak hour. It's a 25 min trip. Lots of locals use it, and plenty of tourists too!
Many people use it for the free, up-close view of...More
My niece had not been to the City before so of course the Staten Island Ferry was a must do. It was a cold but partly sunny day and sitting inside was very comfortable.
A nice view of the Statue of Liberty was an added...More
Great way to see the Statue of Liberty and it’s free! The ferry is clean, roomy, two levels and you have your choice of staying inside or outside.
Don’t fall for all those people selling tours for Statue of Liberty 🗽
Take the free trip to Staten Island and view the Statue of Liberty and fantastic views of the manhattan sky line. What more could you want. The ferry is huge so takes a lot of passengers per trip. Very well organised and efficient

The Staten Island ferry goes from downtown Manhattan to St George terminal on Staten Island. If you know what you are looking for and are on the right hand rearside on the ferry leaving from Manhattan you might get a glimpse. 10 storeys sounds high but not in context. The Ferries returning to Manhattan track a course too far away. When you get off the ferry at Staten Island take the stairs to the top of the terminal and look from there. Slightly to the front left. It is certainly not a short walk from either St George or Battery Park (Manhattan) Ferry Terminals. More like a 16 mile drive from Manhattan (altho may be able to bet there via public transport) and about 11.5 mile drive from St George Terminal. I think the monument a previous respondent is referring to is the Staten Island 9/11 Memorial which is a short walk from the St George Terminal.
OK, my wife and I have finally figured out what we want to do while in New York City on Friday and Saturday (November 21st and 22nd) and Sunday morning (November 23rd). We are flying out of Newark at 1:45 on Sunday afternoon. Since we really only have two full days in NYC, we want to make sure we make the best use of our time. I'll list below what we are wanting to do and then I'd like for you all to help me out with some sort of a schedule of when is the best time to do what. Top of...More

Okay here's a few suggestions; - Museum of Modern Art has free entrace on Friday (i think after 4:00) otherwise it is an automatic $25 dollars per person. - Top of the Rock is better and has shorter lines than theEmpire State building ..... some people say to go in the evening - Wall Street should been seen on Friday when they is some activity going on during business hours. Chinatown and Ground Zero should be grouped in the same day since they are all in the same general area. -...More

HI all, Yes, I am also another addict. My dilemma: I will be coming to NYC on March 25th for a 6 night visit. I have been twice before, once with my mother, once with my friend and our daughters who were seniors in high school. Both trips went smoothly and were fabulous. THIS trip, however, is my family of 5, all as different as night and day. My daughter is now 20, and wants to take care of everyone in the world. She has the kindest heart, is sweet, sensitive, funny, and a slob. My...More

Liberty / Harbour Cruise (1 Replies)
Hi We are visiting 3rd and 4th August this year and wanted to book a harbour cruise taking in Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge etc. We didnt really want to go on the island just do a 1 to 1.5 hour cruise as our time is limited in NYC. Our party also contains children so we didnt necessarily want to go on the island and suffer additional queuing due to security etc. Liberty Cruises did do one but this has now stopped 4th July with the island reopening. Our available time slot is early...More
