Catch amazing views of the Manhatten skyline and say hello to Lady Liberty on your journey. The Staten Island Ferry normally takes between 25-30 minutes each way - so sit back, relax and enjoy the best views of NYC.  

 

2. Explore the beautiful Brooklyn Botanical Gardens... 

Go green at Brooklyn Botanical Gardens - it's free entry on Tuesdays (between 8am - 6pm) and Saturdays (between 10am - noon).

 

3. Join a food tour of Chinatown... 

Free Tours by Foot provide free tours every day of the week. The Chinatown Food Tour takes place on Friday afternoons. The tour is free but we would reccommend bringing around $10 so you can sample some of the yummy food!

 

4. Make a day of it at the Bronx Zoo...
