Great free ferry ride in NYC!Flag review
My son and I loved riding the free Staten Island Ferry. It’s free and takes about ½ hour each way. Little kids would enjoy watching the boat docking. On the way to Staten Island you will see the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. On the return trip you will see the amazing Manhattan skyline. I imagine this would be a fun trip to do at sunset or sunrise, although you may run into rush hour commuters during the week.
