I satisfied my ferry obsession while in New York over Thanksgiving. The Staten Island Ferry departs Whitehall Terminal in Manhattan every 30 minutes and transports passengers to Staten Island in only 25 minutes.
The ferry provides a good view of not only the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, but also the Manhattan skyline.
So what do you do when you get to Staten Island? Hurry to catch the next ferry waiting to depart for the return trip!
Three ferry trips in 2013…not bad!
