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.
