The City of New York has operated the Staten Island Ferry since 1905. It is one of the world’s busiest ferry routes, carrying over 20 million passengers a year; rivaled only by Star Ferry in Hong Kong.
Great place for a late night date. Both ends are recently renovated w/a 24hr bar that plays music on the Manhattan side & another restaurant on SI side.. Both w/great views. Great for history buffs 2.
Best way to check out the Statue of Liberty for free.
Nice and breezy ride in the summer. Has a beer bar. Manhattan skyline view is worth the 25 min trip!
Free ride for a great view of southern Manhattan and the statue of the liberty
Right by Battery Park. Ferry is other side of the park.
Trust me. Take the ferry, drink a few beers (best happy hour deals in all of NYC) and enjoy the sights.
Tons of discoveries
You can drink on it and it's free.... If only they could run the subway system this well...
Great views of miss liberty and city. Free too
Its a pretty comfortable ferry and taking it after a good walk across NY helps you relax. You get to see the NY skyline and also the statue of liberty from the side decks of this ferry.
Everything inside is overpriced and a tourist trap eat at the Halal stand at the end of the outdoor plaza.
Great views for free... get in and out of the city easy.
The best way to see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
One of the most known free tourist attraction!
Always a good idea! Beware of people offering you trips for 💲💲💲, just keep walking
You can't get much better than free! And they views are well worth the ride.
The best and free of care view of NYC and the statue of liberty
Stay at the upper deck on the right back corner to have the best views of NY skyline and the liberty statue ...
It's free and departuring 24/7. Offer scenic views to the city and Statue of Liberty as well.
The Pretzel pizza pepperoni is yummy
You don't need to push or make long lines. The ferry is very big with plenty of space for everyone. In every floor there is space for good photos of the Statue of Liberty.
Free boat ride.
You can take the FREE FERRY at 1 train final destination upstairs the station and watch a beautiful view of the hole city and Lady Liberty
To get nice photos of the statue, go upstairs and then to the right side of the ferry. But you can easily change the side through the trip .
Clean and free!
Transfer to the M15
Take the R to Whitehall
A great way to see the Statue of Liberty without the lines. Avoid peak hour and join the line but don't worry, the ferry holds heaps! Get a seat by a window that opens and enjoy the ride.
A great way to see the Statue of Liberty for free. Be on the right side on the upper deck to get a vantage point. Prefer standings if you need to click pictures like me.
Moving & grooving
Statue of Liberty
When you get to Staten Island, don't get right back on the boat! Stop by SI Arts' Culture Lounge - check out their rotating exhibit space and pick up a locally made gift from their artist market.
This place needs a bar!
It's warm inside.
Free ferries around the Statue of Liberty every day.
Heading to the ferry looks like a Apple release line, lol
Beautiful scene of Manhattan especially at sunrise and sunset.
Have a view from the other side ... see Manhattan from Staten Island!
Get here before 5 it's packed
A free ferry ride that gives you panoramic views to lower Manhattan and Statue of Liberty (not a close view)
Best free harbor views!
When you get on the ferry keep walking to the end to the ropes, great view!
A free, authentic way to see the Statue of Liberty. Best to do at sunset. Ferries run around the clock – every 15-30 min.
Take a ride on the legendary Staten Island Ferry that docks in Whitehall terminal.
A nice boat ride-- too bad it winds up in the dump that is Staten Island.
