Yesterday Senator Daniel Squadron set up a petition to make sure the East River Ferry service will stop at Pier 6 at the foot of Atlantic Avenue all year round. The New York City Economic Development Corporation recently released this request for proposals for ferry operators. The petition asks, “We, the undersigned, urge NYCEDC to encourage respondents to the RFP for an East River Ferry operator to include year-round service to and from Atlantic Avenue/Pier 6 in their proposals and only award a contract to an operator that includes this service.” Here’s the full letter to NYCEDC, which includes lots of support from local pols, Marty Markowitz, and community groups. You can sign the petition here.
