New York City: Staten Island Ferry & Statue of Liberty (kind of)

Due to Superstorm Sandy, the Statue of Liberty was still closed for repairs. So we had to settle for the next best thing: the Staten Island Ferry.

You’re not able to stop at Liberty Island, and the views of the statue aren’t particularly close, but the ferry is reliable, runs 24/7, is fast, and free. The ride is about 25 minutes each way.

From Lower Manhattan, the ferry departs from the Whitehall Terminal and arrives to Staten Island at the St. George Terminal.

Even if you are just taking the ferry to Staten Island and then immediately back, you are required to exit the ferry.

Most people crowd the upper deck to get pics of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, but I thought the views were just as good from lower deck, too.

Here are a few photos below. For more NYC pics, check out my Flickr album.
