    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

    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.

    On a nice day, take the water taxi from Pier 11 to Ikea, you'll have a great view of the city and statue of liberty especially at sunset. Then eat some swedish meatballs and lingonberry juice at Ikea!

    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.'

    If you take the water taxi to ikea on a weekday, the trip is $5 each way... Unless you spend $10 at the store. Then you ride for free!

    For a great view of Manhattan and Brooklyn and a fun boating trip, take the IKEA ferry from Pier 11 for $5 (redeemable as a coupon @ IKEA and if you spend ~$10/person, free trip back!)!

    If you ride on the top deck, sit at the back so you can have a better view of New York harbor

    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.

    For the free ferry ride, come at least 20 minutes early or you'll have to wait 30+ minutes for the next ferry.

    On weekends, there is a ferry that comes every 20 minutes. Ignore the signs that sat every 4
