In Brooklyn? Want to go to Parkerfest? Now you do not have to go to Manhattan to catch the free ferry over to Governors Island. A new route connects Brooklyn. This week State Senator Daniel Squadron’s office 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 Governors 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 Governors Island. It will stop at Governors Island and Battery Park in Manhattan.
Going to the island is one of the best trips in the city; with the live music and activities as part of the Jazz Age Lawn Party that Michael Arenella has planned, it is a weekend not to be missed.
