NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Commuters from the Rockaways can say goodbye to lengthy subway journeys into Manhattan.
Beginning Monday morning, people can catch a ferry to the town each sixty minutes on weekdays. The boat will arrive at Wall Road an hour later for not more than the price of a subway journey.
“Tomorrow morning, a brand new period begins in New York Metropolis,” Mayor Invoice de Blasio stated on the Sunday christening. “Tomorrow morning, we return to the water.”
The mayor was available in Rockaway Seashore for the christening of one of many boats and a ceremonial journey to Manhattan.
The brand new commuting choice is an enormous deal for individuals like Rosie.
“I’m completely thrilled,” she informed 1010 WINS’ Roger Stern. “I’ll be on it tomorrow at 7:30.”
Every boat carries 149 passengers and is provided with wifi.
Further strains are set to launch over the subsequent a number of months.
