Make like a tourist on the Sunset Park ferry to Wall Street
Eye on Real Estate
For real estate-obsessed Brooklynites, ferry boats are like amusement-park rides — fun, fun, fun.
And the new Sunset Park ferry service, in particular, gets high marks for the fresh glimpses it gives us of terrific shoreline buildings and scenery. So what if we get mistaken for tourists?
The primary purpose of the ferry service, which began on May 1, is to serve commuters. It enables residents of the Rockaways to travel to Sunset Park’s Brooklyn Army Terminal in 45 minutes and get to Wall Street’s office towers in one hour.
Boat trips are priced like subway and bus fares — $2.75 per ride and $121 for a monthly pass.
