Pier Pressure

Uncategorized // Sep 23, 2008

Ever since the new World Financial Center Ferry Terminal arrived from Brooklyn to the banks of the Hudson River in June, I have had the opportunity to view the construction progress as I run by early every morning. The design is striking and a real compliment to the fantastic land forming and sculptures in nearby North Cove and Rockefeller Park. There have been significant delays and cost over runs with this project but I am confident that its anticipated rescheduled opening before the end of 2008 will greatly improve ferry service from Hoboken, NJ and other Gold Coast locations with multiple slips and new concessions for the over 7,500 daily ferry commuters.

Keep your eyes open for the grand opening of this exciting transportation addition to New York City waterways.
