Tonight I saw signs on the BQE for ferry service from Great Kills Park, Staten Island, to two locations in Manhattan. It's a temporary move to ease the commute of hard hit South Shore residents. (That's a photo I took in nearby New Dorp below.) A similar service will run from the Rockaways. SI City Council member James Oddo sums it up well, in impeccable Staten Islandese, "We all are all too familiar with the shortcoming of being an island, but using our waterfront in this manner makes sense, and I hope the Bloomberg Administration's initiative provides much needed relief to some Island residents." Here, here.
