Staten Island Ferry, originally uploaded by Chris S Thorpe.
Few things in New York are free. The best bargain in town just might be the free ride on the Staten Island Ferry with it's gorgeous views of New York Harbor. Interestingly, the ferry never really "turns around"..it just changes direction as the stern becomes the bow and vice-versa. One would think that the endless back and forth navigation just might become rather tedious for the crew members!
