Lower East Side Ferry Landing Now Under Construction
Have you noticed the big crane operating in the East River near Corlears Hook Park? It’s part of NYC Ferry’s summer 2018 expansion plan.
A Lower East Side route will be added in a few months, connecting the neighborhood with Wall Street, Stuyvesant Town, East 34th Street and Long Island City. The 90-foot long ferry landing near the East River Bandshell will be able to accommodate three boats at a time.
NYC Ferry attracted almost 3 million riders last year. The city has not been specific about a launch date, but don’t expect it at the very beginning of the summer.
