NYC Ferry launched on May 1st, 2017, with the goal of bringing much needed transportation options to neighborhoods traditionally underserved by public transit. We want to showcase these neighborhoods from the unique perspectives of the youth who live and spend time there. Each of our 2017 routes—Rockaway, East River, South Brooklyn and Astoria—are represented here by youth photographers who welcome you to their neighborhood.


NYC Ferry operated by Hornblower is the newest way for New Yorkers and visitors to “Work, Live and Play”. The ferry service connects the New York boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx to provide critical transportation links for areas currently underserved by mass transit and connect them to job centers, tech hubs and schools in and around New York City.
