First Glimpse of Corlears Hook Ferry Landing, Launching Summer 2018

Posted on: February 14th, 2018 at 5:07 am by

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.

The Department of Health came down to 174 Orchard Street and ordered the establishment shut. The requisite yellow […]

First Rendering of the 14-Story Hotel Rising at Vacant Eldridge Street Lot

What the neighborhood doesn’t need is another large-scale hotel. But that’s precisely what’s happening at 79 Eldridge Street, where construction last week commenced on a new context-killing fourteen-story lodge. And now we have our first sight of what to expect from this long-vacant lot. It’s amazing how these illustrations completely gussy up neighborhoods to make […]

The Neon Lights of Sunshine Cinema Have Gone Dark

The Sunshine Cinema on East Houston is one step closer to its grave. While the brickwork of the building remains bathed in orange glow, the marquee lettering was not as lucky. As of this week, its token neon signage has gone dark. Shadows are now cast on the sidewalk below. Demolition is nigh. This latest action […]
