The second ferry stop in the Bronx is now officially open, with boats ready to take commuters to Midtown in under 40 minutes.
The Throgs Neck Ferry Point Park ferry stop allows patrons to take a ride as far down as lower Manhattan for only $2.75. Mayor Bill De Blasio and elected officials gathered in Ferry Point Park today to officially launch the new stop.
While the ferry program has been servicing the city for five years, Soundview was the only stop in the Bronx until now. This new landing was announced back in 2019 and is an extension of the Soundview line.
Developers tell News 12 the project was slightly delayed because of COVID but was still completed by their 2021 deadline.
There's a free parking lot outside of the park and a shuttle to bring passengers through the park and to the ferry landing. To bring a bike on the ferry will cost $1.
“This community deserves this,” said Mervin Montalban of Throgs Neck. “This community deserves to be more connected, and the ferry allows that to happen in an incredible new way.”
The ferry will be stopping at the Throgs Neck stop every day of the year from around 5 a.m. to around 8-9 p.m. and is the same cost as riding the subway.
