Staten Island Ferry

1 Whitehall St. at South St.
Connects Whitehall Terminal near Battery Park in lower Manhattan to the St. George Ferry Terminal on Staten Island. The classic orange double- and triple-decker ferries run 24 hours year-round, and there's never a fare. Where else can you get a free harbor cruise past the Statue of Liberty, with a gorgeous view of lower Manhattan? Visit Historic Richmond Town, Garibaldi-Meucci Museum, Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, and other great Staten Island sites(Voorlezer's House, dated 1696; the Lake Tysen House, 1740; the Conference House; Barrett Park Zoo; Walker Park Tennis Club, where the first tennis match in the U.S. was held). Free for pedestrians.
