Photo by myself at Pier 11, near Wall Street.
Believe it or not, the above photo shows the tremendous line of people waiting for the ferry. Each day, hundreds of commuters travel on the NY Waterway ferries from parts of New Jersey to Wall Street.
You can also catch a ferry from midtown at West 39th Street or from the World Financial Center, which is also downtown. Depending on the time of day, ferries depart every ten to thirty minutes. Fares vary depending on distance.
I have yet to take one of these ferries. Like many New Yorkers, I took the Staten Island Ferry just to enjoy the water ride, taking the return trip immediately. By the way, the Staten Island Ferry is free of charge!
