No longer just a nickel a ride, but still affords a spectacular view of New York City.

A great opportunity to see the fabulous lower NYC skyline as well as a fairly close overall view of the statue of liberty and the surrounding area, all for under $1 each way.

For free!! Fantastic view of NY harbor, Statue of Liberty, Lower Manhattan skyline and a cool, breezy boat trip - and the NY terminal is within walking distance of the financial district, Wall street, the stock exchange and the famous bull statue. Also an unexpected insight to how so many New Yorkers commute.
