Have used this ferry multiple times to get to staten island, and I think it is brilliant! The wait to get in a ferry is never longer than 20 mins, crossing time is around 20 mins and you also pass the statue of liberty....all for free! The first time I went (2008) I used the ferry purely because it was free, and ended up watching the staten island Yankees play, but I was curious about what else the island had to offer, which would never have occurred to me without the free ferry. This time (2012) I ventured out to the zoo, then spent a whole afternoon exploring a park, before returning after dark, simply awesome to look at all the buildings lit up as you sail back! Views/an experience like this doesn't come cheap usually so I bring you back to my first question.....why wouldn't you?!
