Check out the New Corlears Hook Ferry Landing, Due to Launch Imminently

Posted on: May 21st, 2018 at 5:00 am by

You’re looking at an aerial view of the new Corlears Hook ferry landing, which is making some serious progress.

Two months after Mayor de Blasio visited the NYC Ferry project site, the new dock is close to completion. The canopied shelter is in place and construction material nowhere in sight.

As previously reported, this new Lower East Side line – part of a $55 million expansion three years in the making – 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.

Meanwhile, summer schedules for the other ferry routes go into effect starting today; Corlears Hook is noticeably absent. There is no timetable, either, according to NYC Ferry.

“An exact date for our future routes have not been finalized but once they are we will release the dates on all of our social platforms,” a spokesperson noted in a statement.
