I can never get over the fact that this is free! Views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty are fantastic and the boats are so big you never have to wait for long. You'd have to be mad not to do this when in New York.

Great way to see the Statue of Liberty and you get to go on a ferry and it’s free!
That last part makes it even better in an age where typically you get nothing for nothing. The Staten Island ferry has an almost iconic status (in my head at least) so its worth doing for that reason alone but it’s refreshing to see a city providing a ‘free’ service for commuters and tourists. Locals will no doubt wonder about the point of going over to Staten Island and turning right round on the next ferry but if you’re visiting NYC and you have an hour to kill it beats standing in line to go up the Empire State Building. Remember they didn’t have to queue in An Affair to Remember or Sleepless in Seattle but chances are you will. Choose the Staten Island Ferry instead.

Give your wallet and feet a rest as you enjoy the free Staten island ferry which takes you past the Statue of Liberty and offers up amazing views of the Manhattan skyline. Dhannel your inner Charlotte and Carrie from SATC and ride the iconic orange Staten island ferry. Toot toot, beep beep! Return trip is free and relatively quick - efficient use of time and resources.

We got some great views of the city taking the Ferry! Including views of the Statue of Liberty. The boat was HUGE (it can hold up to 6,000 people), and also very crowded on the back decks where you can get the best views. Honestly, it was free so you can't beat that!

Great views of Manhattan and Brooklyn sky lines as well as great for taking pictures of the Statue of Liberty. Can't beat it for something free to do in NYC!!
