East River Ferry may get 11 new stops


Though it’s too cold to take the ferry on a day like today – at least for us – we hope this happens:

New stops could be on the way for the East River Ferry — but only if the city or a private ferry company is willing to spend tens of millions of dollars to get the new routes up and running, according to a new report.

The New York City Economic Development Corporation released a Citywide Ferry Study this week suggesting 11 new stops along five additional ferry routes, including East 23rd Street and Grand Street in Manhattan, Astoria in Queens and St. George on Staten Island….

The EDC initially considered 55 potential new ferry stops, based on suggestions from residents, but decided that just 11 spots were viable: Van Brunt Street in Red Hook; Bay Ridge; Astoria Cove; Roosevelt Island South; Long Island City North, Soundview in The Bronx; East 62nd Street; East 23rd Street; Grand Street; St. George on Staten Island and Beach 108th/116th Street in Queens, according to the report.
