New Rules for Staten Island Ferry: No Earbud Leakage, Bird Feeding
The rules have been tightened for behavior on the Staten Island Ferry. No loud noise, including "plainly audible" earbud leakage. You can't hand out pamphlets, either. Also, no "feeding animals, exposing oneself, or fishing from a ferry or ferry dock." A full list can be found here; they are mostly expected, but daunting when viewed all together in a 19-page document. It is hoped the new ordinances will improve tourism to the Island, though that may require they be extended to its shores as well.
