Staten Island Ferry, For Free Glimpse of The Statue Of Liberty.
We clearly have to go back to New York! On our last trip we visited Battery Park walked along to the Staten Island Ferry Whitehall Terminal, walked past, took pictures of the Ferry and went on our way.
We have since learned that it is 'free' to travel on the ferry, which takes walk on passengers, mainly commuters and sightseers to Staten Island St. George Ferry Terminal, passing The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island on route.
The journey is 5 miles and takes about 25 minutes each way.
If sightseeing it may be advisable not to travel at rush hour times!
