The Staten Island Ferry is a passenger ferry that runs between the boroughs of Manhattan and Staten Island. From the deck of the ferry, you will have a perfect view of The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. You'll see the skyscrapers and bridges of Lower Manhattan receding as you pull away and coming into focus again as you return (if starting from Manhattan).
The ferry departs Manhattan from the Staten Island Ferry Whitehall Terminal at South Ferry, at the southernmost tip of Manhattan near Battery Park. On Staten Island, the ferry arrives and departs from the St. George Ferry Terminal on Richmond Terrace, near Richmond County's Borough Hall and Supreme Court. Service is provided 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

I did this ride 2 times so far and it was unique.I always end up leaving Manhattan before sun set and coming back into a sunset. So many great pictures taken and I'm sure many more will follow

Once you are at the parking area you can choose to start the loop in either direction. I like the idea of leaving the Mansion for last so that is what I did.
