This free ferry runs frequently. We did this trip 4 times (back and forth) to try get the sunset and night photos of New York’s Skyline, safe to say it was worth it for the amazing photos alone. Police patrolling the ferries so felt safe.

It's a simple as it gets ... you get on a ferry to cross water to arrive at another location. But this is well organized and free to the public. The waiting area is large with shops and washrooms and the boats are mainly on time. It's just a short trip on a large ferry that offers lots of seating. This is something that New York does right.

being a daily commuter from staten island to manhattan, the staten island ferry is an important vessel in my travels. the staff are always a treat to encounter. they run on a 30min schedule, to and from new york. if there are any issues they let you know as soon as possible. it’s a beautiful view of the skyline on both sides , to include the statue of liberty, and yes, it’s free!

We took the ferry across so we could get a peek at the Statue of Liberty without having to pay for the statue ferry. It's a quick trip to and from but just enough time to take in the beauty of the statue and take pictures. The ride back gave us gorgeous views of the NYC skyline so that was a bonus. I recommend going at late afternoon/early evening as the statue is so beautiful when lite up.
