Staten Island Ferry / Statue of Liberty

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by MDG2004 on September 10, 2004

Crowded, fairly noisy, and we found it a little difficult to find where the ferry left from (just ask a nearby cop). However, the ferry offers impressive views of the Manhattan skyline, and brings you within photo-distance of the Statue of Liberty. Get on, get off, and get back on again. It takes about 25 minutes each way, with a wait between the rides there and back. There is a McDonald’s at Staten Island, so you can refresh with a drink before riding back. If traveling in autumn or winter, wear some warm clothing because it is quite cold on the ferry.
