Free ferry service, the best kind short of a ferry with a cash bar, will begin running from Liberty State Park in Jersey City to lower Manhattan and from Weehawken headed to Pier 79 at West 39th St. in midtown. Thank you state of New Jersey. What a great area to live in. You can show up, get a free ferry ride to New York City, drink a cup of Good Morning America after baiting your hook and fishing your way across the Hudson. Bully!
The ferries will operate weekdays between 6 and 10 a.m. for riders headed into New York, and from 4 to 8 p.m. for riders headed back across the Hudson River.
