Weekday ferry service between the Rockaways (Beach 108th Street and Beach Channel Drive) and Lower Manhattan (Pier 11) will continue for at least the next six weeks, with the potential to continue the service through Labor Day weekend if ridership remains strong, Mayor Bloomberg, City Council Speaker Quinn, Deputy Mayor Steel and NYCEDC President Pinsky announced today.
In addition, beginning July 4th, enhanced weekend service between the Rockaways and Pier 11 in Lower Manhattan will also start with the addition of one service run in each direction every Saturday and Sunday through Labor Day. The weekend ferry will now also stop at Beach 108th Street. The enhanced ferry service, including the new stop, will provide an additional commuting option for Rockaway residents and bring visitors and economic activity to beaches and businesses impacted by Hurricane Sandy.
