As someone who used to pay a fortune for touristy cruises around Lower Manhattan, the Staten Island Ferry is all you need for $0. The new shopping mall and of course Staten Island itself is great to explore. Love riding the Ferry.
If you want to see the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governor’s Island, Brooklynn Bridge, etc. then take the Stanton Island Ferry. It will give you all of this for free and it’s a fun and free way to travel.
Very busy at 11am but still got a space with a view. Can't beleive it's free to ride. Please note you have to get off, you cannot stay on for the ride back (just walk round through the waiting room though).
