Expand Ferry Service between Brooklyn and Governors Island
Governors Island is a true NYC destination, and New Yorkers in all boroughs deserve access.
Even though the island is geographically closer to Brooklyn, the City only provides year-round daily ferry service from Manhattan. From Brooklyn, you can only get to Governors Island on weekends, and only in the summer.
That’s a real disadvantage for Brooklyn residents.
Expanding ferry service to operate daily between Brooklyn and Governors Island will dramatically improve access to tremendous open space, cultural, and educational resources for Brooklyn’s residents, and fit well into harbor-wide plans for ferry service.
I support daily service between Brooklyn and Governors Island.
