The Astoria ferry route, connecting western Queens to Roosevelt Island and Manhattan, is making its debut tomorrow morning after months of planning and preparation, according to the Economic Development Corporation.
The complete route, unveiled by the NYC Ferry last week, will begin operating at 6:30 a.m. from Hallet’s Cove in Astoria, where ferries will make their way to Roosevelt Island, Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, go across to East 34th Street in Manhattan, and make their way down the eastern coast of Manhattan to Pier 11 at Wall Street. The entire route takes approximately 45 minutes to go through.
Ferries will begin service at 6:30 a.m. every day, and wrap up between 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm. They will take off every 25 minutes during morning (6:30 am – 9:50am) and evening (3:40pm to 6:35pm) peak hours,
