The price of everything is always going up, up, up in New York City . . . with one exception. The Staten Island Ferry remains the best deal in the Big Apple: it's free, and has been since it started operating in 1905.
The 25-minute ride between Whitehall Terminal in lower Manhattan and St. George Terminal on Staten Island gives you THE best view of the Statue of Liberty, 24 hours a day. And unlike the paid forms of transportation in the city (we're looking at YOU, subways and buses!), the Staten Island Ferry has the best on-time record of all forms of city transit, so you won't miss out on other sights and activities.
