NY Waterway Updates!
Weekend service resumes uptown
NY Waterway resumes weekend commuter ferry service between 14th Street in Hoboken and West 39th Street in Manhattan Saturday, April 4. Ferries run every 20 minutes between 9 a.m. and 8:10 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
NY Waterway’s free buses transport commuters from the beautiful ferry terminal to Times Square, Rockefeller Center and other points throughout Manhattan.
Yankee Clipper back again!
I’ve taken this service to Yankee games – and nothing beats it!
Starting just in time for the Home Opener on April 16th, Yankee Clipper baseball cruises make getting to the new Yankee Stadium a hassle-free, traffic-free “sailgate party.” Serving all New York Yankees home games, this sightseeing cruise offers hot dogs, soft drinks, beer and mixed drinks as it glides past the skyline – and the traffic – arriving at the new stadium 30 minutes before game time, and leaving 30 minutes after the last out. Yankee Clipper baseball cruises depart several points in New Jersey and Manhattan on a schedule linked to game time.
Round-trip cruises on the Yankee Clipper cost $22 for adults and $18 for children under 12. Children under 3 ride free.
Make a bee-line to the NY International Auto Show!
The NY Waterway commuter ferry is the best way for car-enthusiasts and families to cruise in a fast, easy, traffic-free way to the annual New York International Auto Show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City, from Friday, April 10th through Sunday, April 19th.
Show-goers can save even more time – and $1 off the price of a round-trip ferry ticket between Port Imperial and Manhattan’s West 39th Street ferry terminal directly across the street from the Javits Center – by visiting nyautoshow.com and purchasing ferry tickets and discounted Auto Show admission tickets online.
Parking at the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal in Weehawken is only $10 per day, compared to up to $50 per day for parking near the Javits Center. NY Waterway offers ferry service from: Port Imperial in Weehawken; Hoboken 14th Street; Paulus Hook and Newport in Jersey City (weekdays only); and Belford in Monmouth County (limited weekday run) to the state-of-the-art ferry terminal at West 39th Street / Hudson River Park in Manhattan.
