It’s commonly accepted that New York City is one of the most expensive cities in America to live in, so often not a single eyebrow is raised at our inflated housing prices or the rising prices of commodities. However, non-New Yorkers would be surprised to know that one of New York’s biggest attractions is actually completely free. Staten Island Ferry is a free round trip between Staten Island and lower-Manhattan. There, visitors can enjoy the view of the city skyline or take a look at the Statue of Liberty. It’s a cheap alternative for tourists to see some of the wonders of New York, so enjoy the ride.
