My husband and I spent a fabulous week in this spacious, very clean and quiet apartment. The owners had left us the essentials for breakfast our first day and we were grateful for the coffee, baguette, orange juice and milk they had waiting. The (free) ferry is just a 10 minute walk from the house and it runs every 1/2 hour for 24 hours/day. We enjoyed passing in front of the Statue of Liberty at different times of the day - especially at sunset. One thing we learned during our stay, is that there is a bus (#42 or #52) that picks you up at the ferry station and drops you very close to the apartment when you get back from the city. You can use your NYC Metro Card on these buses. This was especially nice after walking around the city all day, if you're too tired to tackle the (uphill) walk home at the end of the day. We would both like to return as soon as possible and highly recommend it to travelers who want to be close to Manhattan but without all the hustle, bustle, noise and expense.
