Ferry Service To Coney Island?

Marty Markowitz is not the only one who unveiled some big plans in his annual address. In her recent State of The City address, City Council speaker Christine Quinn suggested that the new ferry service which will begin servicing the Rockaways this summer might be extended to serve all five boroughs.

"We'll unveil a detailed plan for developing what will be one of the most significant transit initiatives in recent New York history," the Columbia Journalist quotes Quinn as saying. "Imagine getting on a ferry in Hunt's Point for a day trip to Coney Island."

Considering that the city hopes to lure great numbers of tourists (and New Yorkers) to a redeveloped Coney amusement area, increasing the transportation options for getting down here to Coney isn't a bad idea.

Yea.....That`s wonderful news for New York residents. Ferry service is need of the hour to commute faster and save more time as New York City plays a very important role in the global economy. Some of the world’s highest skyscrapers are found in the business sector of New York city and hence, I am planning to go on a tour to New York city this summer.
