Less than an hour round trip with excellent views of the harbor and Statue of Liberty. Ferry leaves on the half hour. Easy subway access. Just don't go at rush hour when thousands of commuters are trying to get home.
Great experience on the Ferry every time I've visited New York. This is the cheapest way to see the Statute of Liberty. You get great photos! Be prepared for the wind if you go in a cooler month. Otherwise - enjoy!

At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.

Probably best between 0900 and 1600. It will still be busy, as everyone knows it’s free, but the Ferries are quite large. For the best views of the Statue of Liberty, stand by the railings on the right side on the way to Staten Island and on the left on the return journey.
