    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! ;)

    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 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

    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.

    For those who believe the ferry is free, you are terribly wrong Staten Islanders pay for it with a $13 toll on the Verranzo Bridge and poor to nonexistent services after tourist hours.
