We thought maybe it was time to try out NY Waterway’s East River Ferry.

The double-decker catamaran seats 140 people, and on most days, there is plenty of room on board AND in the $5 all-day 160 car parking lot. What’s that you say? Parking in Long Island City?

The Hunter’s Point terminal is located south of 54th Avenue on 2nd Street, with boats departing every 20 minutes during peak time to Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Dumbo, Wall Street and 34th Street.

The ferry costs $4 each way for adults. You can bring your bike for $1. You can ride the ferry back to Queens too.
