Gothamist reports that temporary ferries are going to be available in the Rockaways as residents continue to handle the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Ferries will start running on Monday, November 12, and are the result of a partnership between the Mayor’s office, New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Seastreak, the ferry company. Mayor Bloomberg announced the news on Friday:

“Ferries will depart from Beach 108th Street and Beach Channel Drive (GMAP), where the Economic Development Corporation has been working to install a temporary landing, and stop at Pier 11 in Lower Manhattan with free transfers between Pier 11 and East 34th Street in Midtown. The service will start at 5:45 AM in the Rockaways with ferries departing for Manhattan regularly until 9:20 AM, with regular service resuming during the evening rush. One-way fares will be $2.”
