NEW YORK | Projects & Construction

NYCís Citywide ferry service officially sets sail today!



Quote:
The much-anticipated NYC Ferry service begins today, lessening the commute to Manhattan for many outer borough residents. The first commuter ferry took off from the new Rockaway route at 5:30 a.m. Monday, picked up more passengers at Sunset Park and then arrived in Lower Manhattan in just about one hour. Newly renovated ferries will also launch today on the East River Route, which services Midtown and Financial District communities. On Sunday, Mayor de Blasio held a christening ceremony and took the first ferry ride from the Rockaways to Wall Street...



...In total, there will be 21 stops added as a part of the cityís initiative to expand ferry service to all boroughs. The Far Rockaway route takes passengers from Beach 108th Street to Wall Streetís Pier 11 in just under an hour...



..The city says the ferry, which costs $2.75 per ride, will make about 4.6 million trips per year across the six routes.



...aside from the free Wi-Fi and charging stations, you can also partake in some afternoon (or whenever you prefer) drinking. The ferry will offer beer on tap, wine, and coffee, along with a selection of snacks, all part of a concessions stand called The New Stand. The ferry will offer Brooklyn Pilsner and the Gotham Project on tap, and Joe Coffee will be the pick-me-up of choice.

Magnificent. The power of Neo-Futuristic architecture. Never thought that a Zaha Hadid design would be so adapted and fitable to New York's urban fabric.

MTA is run by the state, while this ferry system is run by city.

However, that doesn't mean that they can't coordinate to use one fare system in the future. These are very new routes on the ferry system and they probably have to settle in and see how everything functions before worrying about that.

But yeah, it seems the only fare system that's somewhat integrated with the subway/bus is Airtrain and PATH. The commuter lines and ferries are different. I wonder if they will change when the new contactless fare system finally starts rolling out next year.

Deserves to be as highly praised as all the Stern buildings - or more so. While I'm not the biggest fan of retro architecture it does add some much needed contrast to all the modern buildings going up. And this one just looks stunning.
