Miss Goering has little to say on the ferry as it plies the Arthur Kill between Tottenville and Perth Amboy. The kill is narrow, so the whole trip probably took 20 minutes or so.
Ferry service began in in 1864 and last until 1963. It was obviated and literally overshadowed by the Outerbridge Crossing, which opened in 1928, along with the Goethals Bridge--inaugurating that stalwart institution we know as the Port Authority. By car, it takes about 20 minutes to get from Tottenville to Perth Amboy.
