Epic day for transportation: The East River Ferry set sail for the first time today. This ferry will connect various Brooklyn locations (docks on N. 6th, Schaefer Landing on the Southside and India St. in Greenpoint!), Long Island City and Midtown Manhattan. Thank you NY Waterway for saving us from another hellish wait on a subway platform! Oh and its free until June 24th. For more info go to the NY Waterway site and play with the interactive map.
