New York: Staten Island Ferry

New York: Staten Island Ferry

Get There: 4 S Street, Whitehall Terminal
Cost: Free

 The terminal next to Battery Park has a free ferry to Staten Island every half hour. The ferry takes about 20 minutes and provides a decent view of the city and landmarks like the Statue of Liberty (which is quite far away, but it’s still possible to get that classic tourist selfie). Note that there is nothing to do on Staten Island, confirmed by a local who when confronted with the question, “What can we do here?” he replied, “The best part of Staten Island is the ferry back to Manhattan.”
