Recapping some of your weekend commuting options:
And now the East River Ferry may or may not suck.
[T]he large number of travelers we are carrying has resulted in many boats reaching their Coast Guard mandated capacity and the loading and unloading of large crowds has at times caused delays in scheduled departures. We expect this to last throughout the free trial period which ends on June 24. If you plan on using the East River Ferry during the free period, especially during the weekend of June 18th and 19th, you should anticipate long boarding delays.
Oh well. Chillax – it’s the weekend!. Enjoy the view during that long platform/pier wait, or simply explore those other alternative modes of transportation.
