A lot of people assume that traveling by boat will be expensive. In many cities, ferries tend to be much more expensive than subways or trains. Luckily this isn’t the case in the Big Apple!
New York Waterway’s East River Ferry runs seven days a week from lower Manhattan to points in Brooklyn and Queens, and back up to Midtown. The boats feature inside and outside areas, making for a comfortable ride in any season. During the week, the ferry costs $4 per person, $6 on weekends. While it’s a few dollars more expensive than the subway ($2.75 per ride), why not enjoy the view during your morning commute, or snap some great skyline pictures while touring the city.
