On Monday a crane was spotted building out the dock for the East River Ferry service coming to North 6th Street on the Williamsburg waterfront, and today the Brooklyn Paper reports the service will begin
on June 13th later next month. The CEO of New York Waterway tells the paper that while he thinks it’s going to take time build up a real ridership, the fact that the ferry will have departures every 20 minutes during peak hours on weekdays will mean “people don’t think of it as appointment ridership.” The fares will run $4 for a single ride and $140 for a monthly pass. Update: A spokesperson for the ferry says the service won’t begin on June 13th; we’ll update this post with the target start date when we hear more.
