Another option is the New York Water Taxi Ikea Express Shuttle (nywatertaxi.com; Mon–Fri 2–8pm; $5, free with $10 purchase from Ikea. Sat, Sun 11:20am–9:20pm, free). The boat runs between Pier 11, Slip A in downtown Manhattan (11 Bush Terminal Yard, South St between Gouverneur Ln and Wall St) and Ikea.
Alternatively, cycle along the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, which connects Red Hook, Dumbo, Brooklyn Heights and Williamsburg, via (mostly) protected bike lanes along the East River. If you do ride, look out for Nobuho Nagasawa's artwork TIMECAST: six etchings of tree silhouettes along the Greenway on Columbia Street. It's one of our favorite pieces of easily missed public art.
