    NYC Ferry Soundview’s Launch Day

    It’s here! The NYC Ferry from Soundview (Clason Point) in the Bronx to Manhattan provides Bronx residents a great new way to get to Manhattan! Official launch date of service for NYC Ferry’s Soundview Route was August 15, 2018.

    •  On August 15, NYC Ferry operated by Hornblower served 3,737 riders on the Soundview Route. This is the highest daily ridership number across the system on opening day.
    • The new route starts in the Soundview section of the Bronx, and stops at the new East 90th Street landing, East 34th Street landing and ends at Wall Street/Pier 11.
    • We also have 350 passenger boats.

    You may be asking yourself why take the NYC Ferry here are a few reasons why:

    Convenience/Arrival Time
    In 46 minutes you can travel from Soundview (Clason Point) to Wall Street who would have a problem with that? As a commuter you want to make sure you get to your destination quickly and NYC Ferry delivers that here are the arrival time for each stop.
    Soundview to  90 Street 18 minutes
    90th Street to 34th Street 16 minutes
    34th Street to Wall Street 12 minutes
    Total Time: 46 minutes

    The cost for a one way ticket is $2.75 yep you heard right to get to Wall Street in 46 minutes it costs you $2.75 they also have monthly plans and separate costs if you bringing a bike which $1.00 extra. (Kids under 44 inches are free)

    One way $2.75
    Monthly $121.00

    Riding to work has never been more comfortable as you are sitting on comfortable seats surrounded by a concession stand with healthy snacks, television, electrical sockets to charge your phone (wi-fi and charging ports) coming soon. The Ferry can accommodate 150 people.

    My kids are 5 and 7 and they absolutely enjoyed the views and just looking at the water they have seats with tables so you are able to eat with them at the table and even catch up on some homework with them on the way home.

    Scenic Views
    From beginning to the end you enjoy a beautiful scenic route of Manhattan looking at the water is peaceful.

    ShopRite Opens In South Bronx

    ShopRite Opens In South Bronx

    I am so excited that on June 28 ShopRite opens in the Bronx which will be located in Bruckner Plaza. I got to take a behind the scenes look at the supermarket and I am highly impressed.

    The supermarket consists of pushing healthy eating and I love it. Shop Rite understands the #not62 which states that the Bronx is one of the unhealthiest boroughs.
