We were in the city for colleges visit tour. One stop was at Wagner on Staten Island.

This was definitely the quickest but also cheapest way to get there from Manhattan (can't beat Free).

The boat is unbelievably vast and accommodate 100s of people. And the views are just amazing. The city, the Statue of Liberty, New Jersey,..

We could not believe the ferry was free. Got a fantastic view of the Statue of Liberty - stay on the right hand side from NY out to the island - she does not turn round after docking !!

Best deal in NYC. Ride the Staten Island Ferry and get a great view of Manhatten, Brooklyn, and Jersey. It was super cold at the end of March, but in the summertime I am sure the view can't be beat as the ferry also gives you a great view of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. One note: everyone must depart the ferry on the other side. So plan to spend time on Staten Island or just re-enter and catch the next ferry back.

We walked on, rode across, then turned around and came back. A great way to spend an hour taking in the views of the New York City Skyline and the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Grab a seat and enjoy the trip. In a city known for things being expensive, this is the best deal around.

The ferry arrives promptly most of the time, and staff are very efficient in getting passengers on and off the ferry. The service is quick and, most importantly, free. Both ferry terminals are clean and easy to navigate, and even if you’re not getting off on the island, you can get a great view of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline, both of which beautiful.
