The Staten Island Ferry is running. The view of the Statue isn't great, but it isn't bad, and it's free. It's up to you whether you'd rather do a cruise that gets you closer.
The Staten Island Ferry is a commuter boat which while shut down a few days after Sandy, is up and running. I would not get Harbour Cruise tickets in advance. See what the weather is when you get here.
Thanks for your replies! My thought was to wait on the weather as well, just wasn't sure if the tickets were hard to get(didn't figure they would be)! Our plan was to tour 9/11 memorial then take ferry, but they are not currently taking reservations for the memorial......guess that's a wait-and-see. Any recommendations on lunch restaurants close to the memorial or ferry? Doesn't have to be anything fancy- just good food and atmosphere!
