NYC Ferry’s Astoria route has been extended to serve the East 90th Street landing in Northern Manhattan. The New York City Economic Development Corporation said the new connection comes at no additional operating or capital expense and won’t change travel time to or from existing landings on the Astoria Route.
“Establishing additional connections and cutting travel time between neighborhoods and job centers is what NYC Ferry is all about,” said James Patchett, president and CEO of NYCEDC.
Rep. Carolyn Maloney, who represents the 12th Congressional District, said the new connection “will streamline commutes for countless people who work in the medical industry on the East Side of Manhattan and in the growing number of startups and established companies moving to Western Queens. Importantly, this new connection will be particularly beneficial to residents of public housing in Long Island City and Astoria, who are currently underserved by traditional public transportation options.”
