THE BRONX - New citywide ferries will debut in New York Harbor this spring, but the latest models are already on display at Brooklyn Borough Hall.

They'll offer city travelers new water routes by summer.

The first new route will connect the Rockaways, Sunset Park and lower Manhattan. Transferring is free to other routes along the Brooklyn-Queens waterfront and to the Bronx.

Each new boat can carry 150 passengers and has space for bicycles, strollers and wheelchairs.

Ferry travel will cost the same as a ride on the subway.
