New York City - Staten Island
Staten Island is the most rural of the five boroughs of New York. Although still predominantly residential in nature, the borough has changed significantly since the opening of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge in 1964.
Staten Island can be reached by bridge from Brooklyn and New Jersey, and by ferry from Manhattan. The ferry is the best option, as it passes by Liberty Island and offers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline and New York Harbor. The ferry is free and operates 24 hours a day out of Battery Park in Manhattan and St. George Terminal in Staten Island.
