The Staten Island Ferry is often utilized for one specific reason: a free and scenic sail past the Statue of Liberty.
Among New York's boroughs, Staten Island has the fewest residents (about half a million) and is the third-largest in size, leaving plenty of room for parks and marshland. Near its North Shore, you'll find city-like neighborhoods. As you travel south, the island starts to feel suburban. Most visitors arrive on the ferry, which takes 22 minutes to travel between the South Ferry docks in Downtown Manhattan and the St. George Ferry Terminal. (The ride is free and includes Statue of Liberty views.) A… predominantly Italian population fills the borough with family-owned restaurants, from casual, brick-walled pizzerias to upscale, all-marble establishments. While chains dominate Staten Island's shopping and hotel scenes, cultural opportunities abound, including museums, galleries, Colonial-era historic sites and theaters that attract recognizable names. Bars, clubs and small music venues cluster near Wagner College and St. John's University. The lack of nightlife in other parts of the island ups the family-friendly vibe.Read More [+]
