New York Harbor

A must-see activity in any trip to New York City should include a tour of the harbor.  The harbor is the source of the city’s great wealth and an important element in its settlement and growth.  The views of the NYC skyline, New Jersey, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island help put everything in perspective.  There are plenty of ways to see the harbor for very little and you can even ride back and forth between Staten Island and Manhattan for free.
