I Love the East River Ferry!

So rare that something in this town is actually done right. In a city that takes, takes, take and then takes some more, the new East River Ferry is a Godsend.

In June the new NY Waterways ferries were launched and it has changed my life. For those of us like myself who have been captives of the MTA, New York City's subway system, it is nothing less than a blessing. And since it is privately run and owned, it is vastly superior an experience.

How wonderful to be able to sit by the river in the morning and get your thoughts and your day in perspective.

What a great way to start and end your workday.
The waters of the East River are calm. The isle of Manhattan awaits.

Here comes the boat. And right on time.

Now this is downright civilized.
