Because building new docks and ferry terminals is much easier than opening new subway stations, the NYC Ferry expansion on the East River is moving along smoothly with minimal delays, opening with new service heading to Roosevelt Island and Astoria next week via the Astoria Route.
NYC Ferry unveiled its schedule for the Astoria Route today that will make its debut next week. The new ‘Astoria Route’ will begin service on August 29 and it will connect Astoria at the Hallets Cove dock to Roosevelt Island, to Long Island City at Gantry Plaza, to East 34th Street in Manhattan, and down to Wall Street. The route will take approximately 45 minutes.
The ferry will run every 25 minutes during rush hours, and every 50 minutes other times. Will this help your commute?
