When Manhattan becomes too hectic and you think to yourself, I'm on vacation I want to relax and stop sweltering in the juices of the city. Ewww. You're in luck! There is a respite and it is almost completely free.
Depart from the Battery Maritime Building, a historic ferry terminal near the Staten Island Ferry terminal.
Hop aboard with someone you want to spend the day with. Especially if they're a good storyteller.

Enjoy the ferry ride. Especially if you don't get out on the water enough.
It's a short trip.
