The New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has revealed new details and renderings of the ferry landings that will be built as part of the Citywide Ferry Service project. Ten new ferry landings will be built and six new ferry lines will be introduced, bringing service to Soundview in the Bronx, the Upper East Side, Lower Manhattan, Long Island City/Astoria, to multiple locations up and down Brooklyn, Governors Island, and finally the Rockaways in Queens, Untapped Cities reports. Many of the ferry lines will terminate at either the existing Wall Street-Pier 11 or East River-34th Street landings. The new landings will measure 35-feet-wide and 90-feet-long, and will feature canopies and wind screens. The routes are expected to open in 2017 and 2018 in phases. McLaren Engineering Group is designing, and Skanska will build the landings.

  1. Hello YIMBY..natural view with waterscape, the reason to travel by boat getting on cool wind.

  2. Will LGA, JFK, 14th street and Domino be added later? Also can you transfer between boats for free?

  3. That walkway between the shore and the canopy, with only a low fence to seperate you from a dunk in the water, looks to be a problem during the many times in the year when we have high winds –which are always exaggerated near the open water. There should be some kind of full wrap-around steel mesh encling the walkway for safety, just as we have with walkways above expressways and certain roads.
