On the Waterfront

Starting on June 13th, Greenpoint is officially a stop on the East River Ferry's water taxi route. This means big things for local businesses on the water (aka almost all of Franklin St.) The water ferry also has stops at 34th St./Midtown, LIC, DUMBO, and Pier 11. A ride on the ferry will range anywhere from $3 - $5.50, depending on how far you travel, but for the first two weeks after it opens it is totally FREE!! There is also a complimentary connecting bus/shuttle service in the city during peak hours. Test out the new water taxi and swing by Old Hollywood to support some local biznass.

Learn more about schedules, etc. from the East River Ferry website.
