Water taxi times. Enjoy. ;)
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!)!
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!
Round trip is free coming from Ikea on weekends
Free ferry on weekends!
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.
This is good stuff to do if you have tourists visiting nyc, take the Ikea ferry at Pier 11 and you'll get a view of this amazing island we leave on
Don't be an idiot, if you're going to go on a wknd, get here early.
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
Free Ikea ferry to Red Hook
If you ride on the top deck, sit at the back so you can have a better view of New York harbor
Should've checked the schedule.... :)
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!
There is a Hugh fairway next door to ikea, worth checking out

Summer 2013 schedule
You can buy a ticket on the boat without penalty. sshh....
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.
The cheapest way to get the best views of downtown Manhattan, Brooklyn and the New York harbor.
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 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
