The Staten Island Ferry ride is 25 minutes long each way. During weekdays, and at peak hours, the boat is quite full so assemble nearer the front of the line and find a seat on the open deck.

About New York, NY Attractions
A melting pot if ever there was one, New York City is home to a truly astonishing variety of arts organizations and cultural associations. Its massive museums devoted to art and natural history are world-renowned, but the city's smaller museums have their own appeal, often featuring a narrower collection or an esoteric focus, like crafts, design and photography. Despite the constant construction of new buildings around town (some of which are architecturally significant), there are still a number of fascinating historic structures. And even with the never-ending hustle and bustle, it's quite possible to find serene retreats among New York City's zoos, parks and gardens. Guided tours, whether on foot, by double-decker bus or via boat, are a great way to get a solid overview of the city.
