India St. Pier and G Train Updates

Read the full story, Investigating the India Street Ferry (Or lack thereof) by Matt A. on Greenpointers.

“We’re well aware by now that the imminent five-week G suspension this summer (from late July through the end of August) has many commuters spooked. Adding insult to injury, the New York Waterways ferry landing at India Street—by far the second-best option for many—has been suspended indefinitely since February, when a gangplank failed and plunged into frigid East River waters moments after passengers climbed aboard.”

The East River Ferry’s most recent advisory update on the India St. Pier came on May 25: Service to Greenpoint Still Suspended; Shuttle Bus to provide alternate service. Click the link to also view the schedule for the free shuttle to the Williamsburg ferry stop.

And in other neighborhood transportation news, the MTA has announced an increase in G train service starting today. Have you noticed a difference? Let us know in the comments!



The Greenpoint Waterfront Association for Parks & Planning, Inc. ("GWAPP") is a not-for-profit group, 501(c)(3), comprised of individuals, community organizations, religious institutions, and concerned citizens from the Greenpoint-Williamsburg communities dedicated to the development of parks and public access on the Greenpoint waterfront.

    Please advise what actions we can take to re-virtualized the India Street Ferry.
    It is vital transportation for our area-in regards to the G train shut down this summer..
    any ideas… we can facilitate the repairs.
    perhaps developers need to be asked to assist with the funding needed to alleviate this
    it was fabulous when it was working……

    Thanks for listening…
