I have to say what prompted me to write this review right away was really because of the staff, they were all so nice, from the workers at the entrance, to the ones inside and out, and the pilot, they were all great. We had...More

Hi Kayleigh, Sorry to read of your disappointment. You probably bought your tickets before Expedia updated the price on their end. It should also state that all prices, fees and hours of operation are subject to change. I will check with them to make sure...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis

If a map of New York was looked at 6 East River piers will be found in Manhattan. When we redeemed our voucher (which wasn't Groupon) there and fly from there. New Jersey wasn't mentioned.
