.In the video above, YouTuber, Prentiss C, took his drone up above the docked boats for an interesting look at one of Staten Island’s most famous tourist attractions. The Staten Island Ferry carries over 19 million annual passengers on 33,000 yearly trips over a 5.2-mile (8.4 km) route that takes approximately 25 minutes each way. Each day, approximately five boats transport about 75,000 passengers during 104 boat trips.
During rush hours, ferries usually run every 15 and 20-minute intervals, decreasing to 30 minutes during the mid-days and evenings, and every 30 minutes during very late or early morning/midnight hours. On weekends, ferries run every 30 and 60 minutes.
Prior to producing his Ferry video, Prentiss posted a drone video over The College of Staten Island after a snowstorm. You can see that below:
