We are ferry excited to now be connecting the Bronx and the Upper East Side to new jobs centers, opportunities, housing and more! We had a blast with our influencers who helped show their fellow Bronxites how to #cruiseyourcity from the Bronx to Manhattan in under an hour.

Dandy in the Bronx, showcases the many commuter benefits we have to offer riders, such as onboard concessions, power outlets and a beautiful morning sunrise for Bronxites to #commuteincomfort. In addition, we also offer bike racks, stroller space, baby changing stations and year-round service.

To learn more about Dandy in the Bronx’s ,aka Diego Leon, experience while riding with NYC Ferry visit his blog here. He will be sharing his moments on the NYC Ferry Soundview Route over the course of August into September. Be sure to follow his NYC Ferry Adventures @dandyinthebronx.

The Bronx Mama got to spend the morning with NYC Ferry at the Soundview Route Launch and inaugural ride, as well. Sharing her trip and planning a family day utilizing our free transfers on all NYC Ferry Routes! The Bronx Mama, known as Nicole Perrino, made a day of our Soundview Route Launch.

Her potential day consist of leaving from our Soundview Landing with the kids in tow heading to Wall St./Pier 11 Landing and using our free NYC Ferry transfers to hop on our Rockaway Route to take the kids to Rockaway Beach! She enjoyed being able to connect to the other NYC Ferry Routes and now having an easier way to cruise to other parts of New York.

Everyone couldn’t get enough of Simply T Nicole and her gorgeous family at our Soundview Route Launch and inaugural ride. She was commuting in comfort with her family in tow. Her gorgeous kids, 5 years old and 7 years old, enjoyed the morning city views.

She loved the tablespace we provide and liked how you can have a family breakfast or catch up on homework with the kids on their commute home back to our Soundview Landing.
