The city of New York is not only connected by the various subway lines, buses and bridges but it also has an excellent means of water transport.
The NYC Ferry is an ideal means of transport because in addition to moving from one point to another, it becomes an attraction in itself for the amazing views of the New York skyline.
The tickets are cheap, they cost the same as a subway ticket, $2.75. They can be purchased in advance through the official application or from the vending machines that are in each terminal.
You can not pay with the Metrocard at the moment. This ferry has different routes that bring us to different neighborhoods in New York.
Keep in mind, this is not an actual tour, its just another means of getting around NYC, except this one has amazing views!
