Took the ferry from Weehawken to 39th street terminal and it was a seamless task. Their app is great and the ferry is clean and on time. Stayed in Sheraton which is less than 2 minutes from the ferry. Would highly recommend this way to get into the city!!

Very pleasant ride across the Hudson. Lands in either Midtown or the Financial District. We landed in midtown and took their FREE bus to Times Square. Very convenient.

Ferry took us right to NYC, you can access ,many ports, great schedule. Parking was only $16 for the day, newer facility with lots of parking. Helps avoid the traffic while driving and also the high costs of parking in the city. Cost $18 round trip. They also have shuttles in NYC once you arrive to take you to destinations... More

Very simple to use, bought tickets using app. Sheraton hotel apparently doesn't sell the tickets for those going to Lincoln harbor, but otherwise very easy. Quick ride too...

Had to use this often as I was staying in Lincoln Harbour. Seemed a very efficient service, though if you use it often it adds up, and it's not cheap.

Not bad and runs pretty frequently between New Jersey and Manhattan. Pretty of taxi waiting outside and they have free buses to take you into the city for free. You just need to choose the one that is near your destination. Good way to see Manhattan skyline and don't have to break a bank.

Great way to avoid Midtown traffic. Schedule is excellent to midtown both during the week days and weekend. Can get expensive if you have a large family. They are finally replacing some of the older City buses which were terrible. Still find almost all of the employees miserable. Bus drivers are angry and not helpful for the tourists. Time to...

I was staying with a friend in Weehawken and pretty much took the $9 ferry from the terminal every morning. There are different "skips" where you board based on where you want to go (I went to skip #2). It is an 8 minute ride and the views are beautiful, but what I didn't really know was what to do...

Drove to NYC for a long weekend and decided to park at the "Central Parking Garage", which is directly adjacent to the ferry terminal. Best decision we made. No issues at all leaving our car overnight for 4 days. Price is right at $16/day and certainly beats island rates... not to mention avoiding the Manhattan traffic. Arriving in Manhattan, the...
