Staten Island Ferry

Every day, thousands of New Yorkers use the ferry to get between their homes in the quiet borough of Staten Island, and their jobs in Manhattan. Until 1997 they were paying 25 cents for the ride, but now they pay nothing at all, and you can too. From the ferry you'll get great views of the lower Manhattan skyline, as well as the Statue of Liberty. And plenty of fresh air.

The trip is just under half an hour each way. It runs all night, and the views of the city after dark can be breathtaking.

Also check out the street performers just outside the ferry terminal building and in nearby Battery Park. You'll find jugglers, break dancers, musicians, and more.

Getting there

The ferry terminal is at the South Ferry subway station.
