St. George Terminal and Ferries
The St. George Ferry Terminal isn't just a terminal point for the ferries, it is a locale all of it's own. Hosting various dining establishments, it's easy to get a slice of pizza at ZZ's Pizza, or an assortment of pastries, sandwiches or salads at Au Bon Pain. Maybe you are craving a soft pretzel? Island Soft Pretzel Stop is for you. Want to do some set down dining? There's always the River Dock Cafe. Peppered among these call out locations are other staples, like Subway, or Dairy Queen.
The Staten Island Ferry is one of the last remaining vestiges of an entire ferry system in New York City that transported people between Manhattan and its future boroughs long before any bridges were built.
The Ferry runs 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week. More frequent service, (every 15 or 20 minutes,) is provided on the weekdays during the rush hours of 6:00AM- 9:30AM and 3:30PM-8:00PM, with 30-minute service to follow. On weekends, service is provided every 30 minutes.
There are food concessions aboard every boat. Beer is sold, but not hard liquor. The food concessions are open when ever a boat is running (24/7).
