    No extra charge for bicycles on the ferry... and Governors Island offers miles of vehicle-free biking! (Bicycles and surreys can be rented on the island.)

    The ferry is free before noon on weekends. The lines can get long, so make sure you get there at least 30 min before your desired departure time!

    The Dutch landed here in the 17th century to establish a trading post. 400 years later, NYC is still considered by many as the financial capital of the world. To learn more, visit the MoAF at 48 Wall Read more

    Ferry is no longer free most times (save the first two trips out from Manhattan on the weekends). Now costs $2 round trip for adults or $20 for the season pass but now runs during the week.

    Fits much more people than the line ever makes it look. They can almost always fit everyone on. Sit up top for more space and better people watching.

    Lots more free stuff than the island itself. Free bike rentals on Fridays and free minigolf on weekends. Who doesn't like free stuff?
