A member of State Senator Daniel Squadron sent out the following letter:
I am writing to share some exciting news- this summer there will finally be free ferry service between Brooklyn and Governor's Island!
This ferry is something that Senator Squadron has long requested to better connect the Brooklyn Waterfront with the rest of New York Harbor, and we hope that you will be able to celebrate with him at the ferry's innaugural launch this Saturday, June 6 at 11:00 am, at Fulton Ferry Landing.
The ferry will leave Fulton Ferry Landing every hour, every Saturday when there is programming scheduled for Governor's Island. It will stop at Governor's Island and Battery Park in Manhattan. Please visit www.govisland.com for a full schedule...
...and please join Senator Squadron and other community members to celebrate the first launch this Saturday at 11:00!
As a friend of mine said: Finally, an idea that makes sense. No longer will Brooklynites have to truck into Manhattan and walk to the hard-to-reach Governor's Island ferry building in lower Manhattan.
