Look for the giant yellow letters showing you that you have arrived at Pier 11. Here you have the option of going on our All-Day Access Pass or IKEA shuttle.
For the free ferry ride, come at least 20 minutes early or you'll have to wait 30+ minutes for the next ferry.
Awesome way to get out on the water & remind yourself of how lucky you are to be in NYC! Plus...free on the weekends?! Amazing.

If you're easily seasick this tiny boat will knock you around. Take the 4/5/6 to Borough Hall and then the nearby shuttle to IKEA plaza. Will run you the same time or shorter for the same price.

Every 20 minutes my ass.
Here's the winter 2012-13 schedule.
Free on the weekends!
The Ikea ferry from Wall Street to Red Hook is free on the weekends and only $5 Mon-Fri.
If the captain/security guard thinks your merch is too large, then you're not allowed on. It's completely dependent upon the captain. IKEA should adopt the rule 'If you can carry it, you can ride.'
From Pier 11 to IKEA, sit on the right side to see the Statue of Liberty. Come before departure time as the line is usually long on weekends and they allow a limited number of ppl on board
From Red Hook to the East River Esplanade park for lunch. Bliss.
On weekends, there is a ferry that comes every 20 minutes. Ignore the signs that sat every 4

Water taxi times. Enjoy. ;)
So many tourists stuff the boat, making a long wait. I see the appeal but I just want to buy my Omar and Komolement and get outta Dodge.
If you ride on the top deck, sit at the back so you can have a better view of New York harbor
