    IKEA / Red Hook ferry boat is small. If you're not among the first 40 people, expect to wait for the next boat.

    Walk over the pedestrian bridge to see "Shadow Garden" and "Community Island Pond," by Carl Cheng. In both installations, you can see reflections of anonymous New Yorkers' faces. A perfect lunch spot! Read more

    Always go to Slip A for the ferry to Brooklyn and midtown. Remarkably, usually on schedule.

    So much more room than the L train, yet no mariachi band to entertain

    Don't count on the Alert System to warn you when Pier 11 will be closed due to security at the heliport (which happens often enough to be annoying)

    Visit here during sun rise. It's the quietest place in the city and absolutely breathtaking.

    Ny waterways... Read how about a separate fair for pier 11 to Hoboken north... Would be cheaper for me to go to Hoboken downtown and then take a cab from there to 14th St... #fail
