The ferry is free and not overcrowded. Great view of statue of liberty and Verrazano Bridge. Great views. Only downside is Staten island needs more attractions to make the trip more worthwhile. But otherwise fun and free.

It’s free and you get a great view of the Statue of Liberty as well as the Brooklyn Bridge. Stand on the outside bottom deck for the best views.

Did this round trip free journey on a lovely blue sky day. Got to go past Statue of liberty. Had time to get off one boat then on to the next for return journey. A great way to enjoy an hour.
