    Views from the Ferry

    Definitely take the Staten Island Ferry and get some free views of the Statue of Liberty, among other great sights. No brainer to go on this very calm ride around the bay.

    Best way to get a free ride on the Hudson and a great view of the Statue of Liberty. It was freezing in late November on the ferry, but it was fun all the same. Great view of the city too!!!

    Not only does the Staten Island Ferry offer great views of the city, it's also free. The ride lasts about 15 minutes each way and takes you by the Statue of Liberty.

    I took this picture on the Staten Island ferry, which is a free ferry service between the two boroughs. It passes by the Statue of Liberty as well.

    It has been one of the most famous skylines...

    Why not try a view from the waterfront? Take the free ferry to Staten Island and have a look at Manhattan from the Hudson River. Spectacular views!!!
