I commute from the UES to the Financial District every day, and when the Soundview Line opened it changed my life. Instead of squeezing into a cramped subway car or waiting forever for a bus, I could take a luxurious ferry ride to work! It...More

I would do all my commuting this way, if I could. The people were extremely friendly, and it was a great way to travel with guests who wanted to see the skyline and the sights without spending all day at each attraction. And for $2.75?!...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
