CITYWIDE FERRY BY HORNBLOWER IS LOOKING FOR GREAT PARTNERS AND SPONSORS. HERE IS A LITTLE INFORMATION TO GET YOU EXCITED.

Over the last two decades, waterfront communities have evolved for residential and commercial communities, including retail, recreation and high tech employment. The attractiveness of these locations has resulted in significant growth in residential and employment spheres. Leisurely activities have also populated the waterfront areas (notably Governors Island, Brooklyn Bridge Park, DUMBO, Four Freedoms Park on Roosevelt Island and Noguchi Museum / Socrates Sculpture Park in Astoria).

Ferries will operate daily, generally between 6:30 a.m. and 10:00 p.m., with frequent and consistent service during weekday peak periods. During off-peak periods and weekends, the frequency of service will vary based on seasonality.
