    You can see the sign for the Staten Island Museum from the Ferry terminal. Take a walk over and see what we've got. Only $3 admission. Kids under 12 free. Open daily!

    Always has a good view of Manhattan. The city is just so tempting that you couldn't help but get on board the ferry especially that it's free and the short cruise is breathtaking lol! ;)

    If you want to enjoy the view choose the left side open deck windows as you board. Great service and nice view to Statue of Liberty and big apple skyline.WiFi on board.

    Did you know? The original Staten Island ferries were painted white, but were changed to orange for better visibility in the rain and fog.

    Try to go upstairs to the left of the Ferry and work your way to the right n front to get the best view and pics of the statue.

    Ferry is free, runs every half hour, has food on the boat. Sit on the back deck in the warm sun for the best seat

    if you're not from Staten Island (especially if you're a tourist) I would avoid going from Manhattan to Staten Island from between 4 PMish and 6:30PMish because a lot of people leaving work/going home

    Be smart: on your way to Staten Island stay on the back of the boat and look at Manhattan from the water. When you return, do the same and enjoy a good view of the Statue of Liberty

    Bus stops at the St. George Ferry Terminal have been relocated during construction. Use Bus Station North for S61, S91, S62, S92, S66, and S78. Use the Taxi Stand for S76, S86, S74, S84, S51, and S81.

    Be sure to check a 9/11 memorial next to the terminal building before leaving Staten Island. Get out of the waiting room and make right and go outside. You'll see the white memorial.

    Robbins Reef Lighthouse is visible from the western side of the SI Ferry. It is maintained by The Noble Maritime Collection located at Snug Harbor Cultural Center. More info at

    For me, lower level provides for street access on NYC side to avoid the mash of the crowd heading for the escalators and stairs.

    Love the new terminal, cool, clean and elegant. The fish are a great touch. Love the new vendors too. My issue: why does the Post office close at 1PM? Stupid!

    If you are lost or want to explore what the Island has to offer, visit the information booth and grab some pamphlets and ask the smiling people in the booth for help :)

    Ferry beers help relieve the stress of the cruddy bus service that makes you miss the boat you originally wanted to catch.

    Another Wonderful! Place you get to know all to well if living in Staten Island and working in the city. Strange people always coming and going through here which mixes up the commute.

    If you are heading back to Manhattan, there is no need to run. The next ferry will (usually) not start loading until disembarkation is complete.

    best place to avoid having forceful, awkward conversation with people you don't want to see is the bike section..even if you don't have a bike..

    Don't take a late ferry or else they'll leave you alone with all the homless people for over an hour. You might as well walk home.

    For best views: Stay on the right side of the ferry coming to Staten Island and stay on the left when leaving

    For the guy who bitched about the bridge toll paying for the ferry. The rest of NYC would happy to remove the bridge and shut down the ferry leaving you the only option of New Jersey.

    They sell beer here at a rather fine price. Also other less than healthy food stuffs. Better off eating on either terminal for more choices.
