Tourists may have little reason to visit Staten Island. But the free 24-hour ferry should not be missed. Just look at this day and night time views of the Manhattan skyline, especially around the harbor, and Lady Liberty. If you have only one day in...More

Great way of taking in the sights for free ........ you ca travel on this over to Staten Island, you must however come off the ferry to travel back, you get the same sights as you do on the fee paying ferries - Its lovely

The Staten Island ferry goes from downtown Manhattan to St George terminal on Staten Island. If you know what you are looking for and are on the right hand rearside on the ferry leaving from Manhattan you might get a glimpse. 10 storeys sounds high but not in context. The Ferries returning to Manhattan track a course too far away. When you get off the ferry at Staten Island take the stairs to the top of the terminal and look from there. Slightly to the front left. It is certainly not a short walk from either St George or Battery Park (Manhattan) Ferry Terminals. More like a 16 mile drive from Manhattan (altho may be able to bet there via public transport) and about 11.5 mile drive from St George Terminal. I think the monument a previous respondent is referring to is the Staten Island 9/11 Memorial which is a short walk from the St George Terminal.
