Another ferry you shouldn’t pass up is the world-famous Staten Island Ferry, which is, incidentally, the least expensive (it’s free) and thoroughly New York experience to partake of. You’ll enjoy some of the most stunning views of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Governor’s Island, Staten Island, New Jersey, and the Verrazano Bridge while on your way to Carol’s Café. It’s a little bit of a trek but worth it. And hey: you’re adventurous, right? You’re a chowhound and willing to go anywhere for good food, right? Then Carol’s should be on your list. The chef, Carol Frazzetta, is obsessed with providing you with a fresh and international take on her superb cooking. She’s prepared one of the most eclectic menus, full of surprises for the intrepid diner. Who knew? One of New York City’s undiscovered gems.
