On Wednesday, 29 August, NYC Ferry’s LES–Lower East Side service launches. The new service and two new ferry landings, at Stuyvesant Cove and Corlears Hook on the Lower East Side, substantially completes the citywide ferry service first publicly proposed by mayor Bill de Blasio in 2015.
In contrast to NYC Ferry’s new SV–Soundview service to the Bronx, LES ferries will be both more frequent and more regular, with boats departing every 25 minutes in both directions during morning and afternoon rush hours and every 40 minutes midday, evenings, and weekends:
Overall, the two new NYC Ferry routes launched this month represent an increase in service of about 40%. Together the LES and SV routes offer 653 weekly departures, increasing weekly journeys across the system to 2,359.
