A wonderful new thing called the East River Ferry just started, offering public transportation via boat from Manhattan to Queens to Brooklyn to Governors Island. I caught it the second weekend it opened and was having temporarily free service (and free iced coffee!). Below are some of the sites from the surprisingly quick moving ferry, which I got on and off at Long Island City, Williamsburg, and DUMBO. I’m not sure how popular it will be with commuters (it’s rather impossible for me, could there be a stop in Gowanus?), but it was fun to ride.
