Curbed breaks down all the stories today about the East River ferry service that’s beginning in June: Brooklyn service will include stops at “Greenpoint’s India Street, North Fifth Street (finally putting the Pier in Northside Piers) and Schaefer Landing in Williamsburg and Dumbo’s Fulton Ferry Landing”; “Rides will cost either $3 or $5.50 each, depending on which price zone a passenger falls into, so a South-Burg-to-Midtown trek would cost $11 roundtrip”; and “Weekend service will run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., bicycles are allowed on board, and summer stops will include Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 and (on Fridays) Governors Island.” On a self-serving note: The weekend service will make it pretty easy for Manhattanites to get to the Williamsburg branch of the Brooklyn Flea that’s kicking off in a few months.
