East River Ferry Up and Running!

Hallelujah, praise the lord! This weekend the East River Ferry resumes regular service.

Whew, that was a close one! Since the ferry landing’s mysterious tumble into the East River this winter, many of us wondered whether the pier would be up and operational in time for the G-train debacle. With mounting pressure from the public and Councilman Steve Levin, the owner of the India Street pier hustled to complete the new ferry landing just in the nick of time. Let us breathe a collective sigh of relief and cross our fingers the rush job didn’t compromise the quality of construction.

The temporary shuttle buses services from India Street to North 6th pier in Williamsburg will remain in effect until Wednesday.  Click here for the summer service schedule.

    If Steve Levin puts enough pressure on coal, it’ll become a diamond.

    Too bad State Senator Daniel Squadron didn’t deserve a mention.
