SOUNDVIEW -

It was a warm, wet Friday in the Bronx, making for slippery conditions leading into the holiday weekend.

Despite a less than stellar day on the roads and rails, commuters experienced smooth sailing on NYC Ferry going out of Soundview terminal.

Riders lined up in the rain to get a seat on the ship's indoor cabin space to lounge and avoid the elements.

Commuters say the holiday weekend paired with the weather meant less riders on-board.
