Closing Bell: Rockaway Ferry Service Extended Through January

rockaway-ferry

There’s word from The Wave Newspaper that the city has decided to extend Rockaway Ferry service to Manhattan through the end of January. Whether or not it will continue after that is up to our next mayor. The ferry service started up after Hurricane Sandy and the $2 trip (which only takes 35 minutes) ended up being hugely popular with Rockaway residents. Over the summer the city announced they’d extend the ferry service at least through Labor Day, while local pols pushed to make the service permanent. Into January, the ferry will continue to depart from Beach 108th Street, stop at 58th Street in Sunset Park (a recently added ferry stop), then continue to Pier 11 in lower Manhattan and 34th Street in midtown.
