Taken the ferry lately? Find out about East River Ferry Service to Manhattan from Brooklyn, and between DUMBO, Williamsburg, Greenpoint and elsewhere:
From City Hall:
The East River Ferry has served one million passengers in just over a year, more than double the initial projection of 409,000 annual riders. The successful first year of pilot service, launched as part of Mayor Bloomberg's Waterfront Vision and Enhancement Strategy to promote sustainable economic development along the waterfront and enhance mobility around the harbor, has already become an important part of city's transportation network. The Mayor and Speaker also announced that in order to improve ferry service further, they will launch a survey to be administered online, on board the ferry, and via phone in the coming weeks. The Mayor and the Speaker rode the ferry from North Williamsburg to Pier 11 this morning.
