    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.

    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! ;)

    In 2005, the upgraded St. George Ferry Terminal was unveiled. The renovation included a new steel and glass design and added an 18,000 square foot garden of local plants on the roof.

    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

    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

    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!

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

    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.

    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..

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

    It's FREE and if you are a tourist in Manhattan ... get on, stand at back on lower level ad it leaves. THE BEST VIEWS OF MANHATTAN

    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

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

    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 :)

    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.

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

    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.

    Headed to Manhattan? Want to join the locals for the First Person off the Ferry race?Sit on the Main Deck (lowest level) at the front. You'll be in a good position to get off fast.

    Generally quieter than its Manhattan counterpart, it also has better fast food options... Subway and Au Bon Pain

    What is with this psycho pick-up/drop-off area? Whatever they are changing had better be worth it. Tip? Get here early and sit in the municipal area. No one pays attention to 'Drop off only', either.

    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 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.

    As I am walking off the train platform people are having a hard time walking because no one from the MTA has cleared the snow the leads from the train platform into the ferry!
