Apartments located within walking distance to a NYC subway stop are always touted as attractive. After all, fewer steps to the train mean a shorter commute to work.

But what about the NYC Ferry?

Don’t overlook proximity to the city’s public network of ferry boats as a perk. If you’re on the hunt for a new apartment, and your office happens to be near a ferry stop, consider one of the neighborhoods featured on this map:
