Ferry terminal move seems to be complete. Let the complaints begin:
Hoboken411 reader Matt caught the “ticket hut” for the NY Waterway playing “musical piers” yesterday, as they moved the waiting area to its new location:

NY Waterway moves Hoboken North terminal to more convenient location
To improve customer convenience and to reduce the impact on a local marina, NY Waterway is moving its Hoboken 14th Street Ferry Terminal one block north to the foot of 14th Street.
During the move the weekend of August 23 – 24, NY Waterway will offer free shuttle bus service between Hoboken 14th Street and the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal in Weehawken. Normal ferry service resumes Monday, August 25.
Because of new development and new streets in the area, the new terminal will be more convenient to more riders. The new location also will reduce the impact of ferry traffic on a local marina, which was built next to the terminal several years after the terminal opened.
The existing terminal building will be moved to the new location, so customers will continue to enjoy an indoor waiting room with vending machines which accept credit cards for ferry ticket purchases. A welcome addition is a monitor which will provide up-to-the-minute schedules and other information.
Commuter ferry service between Hoboken 14th Street and West 39th Street in Manhattan is available seven days a week. NY Waterway provides free shuttle bus service to Hoboken 14th Street and free buses from 39th Street to Midtown and Downtown Manhattan.
