Coming this summer, a new NYC Ferry route will be added connecting Long Island City directly to the East Village, Lower East Side, and Wall St.

The Lower East Side Route, the name of the new line, will have terminal points at the 46th Avenue and Center Boulevard landing at the LIC waterfront, and end at Wall St./Pier 11 in Manhattan. Stops in between include East 34th St., Stuyvesant Town, and Corlears Hook. The total travel time is expected to take 32 minutes, with no more than a 10 minute trip between each stop of the new line.

Attempting to relieve subway pressure, the City has drastically increased ferry service by shortening wait times and adding more lines over the past few years. Also coming later this year is a planned Bronx to Upper East Side ferry line called the "Soundview Route."
