Staten Island Ferry Ride

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by Cauldar on April 24, 2005

This is the best freebie in Manhattan. The best time to go is a little before sunset. There are wonderful views of Lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Verrazano Bridge, Governor's Island, Ellis Island, and the Statue of Liberty.

Stand along the back railing of the ferry in either direction. They offer the best opportunity to see the city and maneuver from one side to the other.

A great little bonus trip is to check out a minor league baseball game with the Staten Island Yankees. See The stadium is within walking distance from the ferry and a lot of fun.
