First Glimpse of Corlears Hook Ferry Landing, Launching Summer 2018
The Lower East Side is joining the ferry fete this summer, further linking the city with the outer boroughs.
Construction on the Corlears Hook landing is steadily progressing, some six months after Economic Development Corp. filed its application with the Army Corps of Engineers for the new riverside facility.
The City launched the NYC Ferry program in the spring of 2017 with the goal of establishing five total routes, each at the cost of a subway ride. Three are already in operation. As previously reported, the Lower East Side line will connect residents with so-called “job centers” in Midtown, the Financial District, and Long Island City. There are five stops on this journey: Long Island City, East 34th Street, Stuyvesant Cove, Grand Street and Pier 11. The total trip will take roughly 32 minutes.
Hornblower is the ferry operator providing service on behalf of the City.
