    Get the app to avoid lines for the ticket. Wait until you see the boat to activate the ticket.

    What better way to enjoy the views of Midtown and Lower Manhattan on a sunny day than from a boat on the East River?

    You can buy tickets through the app really easily. Great when I don't have cash & running late.

    In July 2012, East River Ferry ridership reached one million passengers, more than doubling expectations in just over its first year of service.

    Don't ever be late! The time says 12:30 be there 5-10mins ahead of time they don't wait, just be prepared stays on strict schedule. About a 5min shuttle very convenient

    Use the app to buy your ticket with a card--for some reason they want to charge you an extra $1 to get a ticket on board with a card. They will let you board and use your phone to buy it, too.

    If you don't know where you are going, pay attention rather than yelling at the poor ferry workers when you miss your stop ;)

    Janelle J. · June 16, 2012

    Be on time because the ferry leaves the dock exactly according to schedule

    Cool and stress-free way to see NYC. Never crossed two bridges these fast - Manhattan Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge. Been in the Big Apple since the eighties but this is my first ferry tour!

    One of our great services on the East River! We have several locations! You can even do a transfer at Pier 11, and make your way up the Hudson!

    The best $4 you can spend to commute from Greepoint/Williamsburg to Downtown Manhattan. Absolutely breathtaking views. Have a nice trip! :)

    Introduced in June, 2011, the ferry costs $4 each way and sets sail every 20 minutes. Take a quick, scenic ride to Long Island City (only five minutes away) or to Brooklyn and back.

    Ride past Williamsburg during live concerts. It's like being in a Miami Vice episode

    Catherine Mouttet · October 3, 2011
  • Benjamin P.

    If you can look past the black smoke over the water, it's the best way to go to and from L.I.C., Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bridge Park in DUMBO, South Street Seaport, and Governor's Island.

    Benjamin Peryer · October 1, 2011

    There is no free coffee

    Be on time. These ferries are running like clockwork. In fact, be a few mins early.

    The iced coffee served on board in the morning is surprisingly good!

    Service is VERY unreliable so don't count on the ferry when you're rushed. But when it works the ride is smooth & efficient.

    Turn your back on Manhattan and relish the grit of BK's working waterfront.
