If you are planning to visit Staten Island with a purpose of finding great historical artifacts, don't. It is a great place for a picture opportunity. View of VNB from here is awesome.

This is a perfect place to go if you want to see NYC from a distance. The Verrazano bridge is so beautiful over the water and all the ships in the distance.

Great area to walk or bike and the view of the bridge is exceptional, especially in the evening. The path also brings you to the South Beach boardwalk.

Beautiful and serene. Very tranquil area. Amazing history in and around the area. While parking is limited, the walk from wherever you do park will be worth it.

There are buses that run between the two. You just need to find a bus that gets you back to the ferry during at your desired time. That is probably the cheaper way to do it. But if you don't mind spending a few more... More
