Park in the deck for either a short or long term visit to New York City; walk across the street to catch the ferry to different locations on the island. Easy and reasonably priced!

Love taking the NY Waterway over to New York. They are quick and offer multiple locations. The drop off terminal is so close to other attractions.

Quick way to go from Weehawken NJ to NYC, and was a different view of the big Apple skyline close to Times square.

First visit to NYC. Ferry was convenient, staff on board were friendly, and transportation was quick. Also offered free shuttle busses on the NYC side that was very convenient. Ticket taker on 38th Street pier was unfriendly, but overall an excellent experience.

I have been taking the ferry for a number of years and they have proven to be consistent no matter the weather. They could afford to make the boats themselves a bit nicer inside, but the 39th St and Port Imperial terminals are both nice...More

Very convenient and a quick way to get from Weehawken to the city and back. Some of the ferries could be cleaner, but they do a good job of getting you where you need to be. $9 each way. And if you start on the...More

We used the Waterways ferry and bus system while staying at the Sheraton Lincoln Harbor Hotel. The ferry was so convenient, and the included bus system in Manhattan was perfect. Highly recommend this option when staying at the Sheraton or another location outside Manhattan.

Yes, this is a far more expensive option ($9 each way vs $3.50 for the NJ Transit into Manhattan Port Authority) for getting from New Jersey to Manhattan, but it's worth EVERY penny! We stayed in West New York, NJ recently and were able to...More

Perfect--take the 57th St bus during rush hour times and get off at Broadway. Or, if during the week or weekends, the 50/57th St bus goes up 6th Avenue and turns at 57th St. So take the 50/57th St bus and get off at 57th... More

Parking where? At the Sheraton in Weehawken it is $25/day, you can buy the ferry passes there.

You were trying to take the Weehawken ferry, not Port Imperial in Weehawken. Go north about a mile and there are two large parking decks with plenty of capacity. Better schedule for the ferries too (more frequent).
