    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

  • Kai B.

    The River Dock Cafe at the west end of the terminal has a great beer selection and great views.

    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

    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! ;)

    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.

    Larry · June 15, 2013

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

    Larry · June 15, 2013
  • Mike B.

    This is the best way to get from Staten Island to Manhattan without having to drive.

    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.
