You Will Be Yelled At for Leaning Over the Railing of the New East River Ferry


The new East River ferry service — normally $4, but free for the first twelve days — debuted today. Running constantly throughout the day and every day throughout the year, the ferries will stop in the financial district, Dumbo, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Long Island City, and 34th Street in Manhattan. While you may decide to travel by ferry simply because it’s a lot more fun than taking the subway, a Times live blog cautions that leaning over the railing may very well lead to a scolding by the captain.
