You can find on this page the map of NYC ferry. New York City ferries are a transit system serving the city of New York City (United States) with the subway, the urban, suburban & commuter train or the bus. The ferry network has 19 lines and 25 stations.
Ferries from the East River to New York, called NYC Ferry, provide a cheap connection to Manhattan. The ferry is a good alternative to the often busy New York subway system. With the NYC Ferry you will travel for the same price as the subway and you can enjoy the view of the Manhattan skyline during the day.
This means of transport is developing more and more in New York City, especially with the creation of new lines serving Lower East Side and Upper East Side (Manhattan), Rockaway Beach and Astoria (Queens) and South Brooklyn. Changes can therefore be expected on the services and frequencies of the East River Ferry and NY Water Taxi companies mentioned on the map below.
The Staten Island Ferry is free! It offers one of the most beautiful views of Manhattan, with a relatively close view of Miss Liberty. The East River Ferry is a river shuttle that serves Brooklyn (DUMBO, South and North Williamsburg and Greenpoint) and Queens (Long Island City).
New York City ferries are operated by 6 companies: NY Waterway, Billey Bey, Seastreak, NY Water Taxi, Liberty Park Water Taxi and NY City DOT for the Staten Island Ferry. The most famous line of New York City is the Staten Island Ferry which transports 19 million passengers per year between St George Ferry Terminal and South Ferry Terminal.
The NYC Ferry operates six regular routes: East River, Astoria, South Brooklyn, Rockaway, Lower East Side and Soundview. There are five docks in Manhattan: one at Wall Street/Pier 11, Corlears Hook, Stuyvesant Cove, East 34th Street and East 90th Street. There are also several stops in Brooklyn and Queens.
A ticket for the NYC Ferry costs $2.75 per trip. They can be purchased directly at the machines located at each pier or via the NYC Ferry mobile app. The price of a ferry crossing is the same as a subway ride. If you have a bicycle, you can take it on the ferry.
The NYC Ferry lines allow you to combine business with pleasure by enjoying the view. For example the NYC Ferry allows you to easily combine a visit to Lower Manhattan and the Financial District with crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. If you stay close to the Long Island City pier, it is faster to reach Manhattan by ferry (Astoria Ferry) than by subway.
If you want to enjoy a nice day at the beach, take the Wall Street ferry to Rockaway Beach. The Rockaway Ferry will take you from Manhattan to the Rockaway Beach Peninsula in southern Queens in one hour. This beach is a little less crowded than Coney Island.
