Anyone here have experience with taking the ferry to work everyday? I was thinking of that as an option once I'm heading back into the city. Since the top is open air. Is it usually on time?

East river ferry? I think ridership is way down now (as with everything) but it tends to get very crowded normally. Like lines of people to get on depending on your stop. I agree though, the open air aspect does make it seem safer. Maybe they’ll add more service.

It’s amazing in the summer if you have the time. And when it rains too.

(Space, A/C, no traffic or delays for the most part)

I was commuting on the SeaStreak from NJ for a short time before the shut down. However, be sure to consider the cost; after the initial sticker shock of the ticket cost, I started to enjoy the extra time I gained on the boat. It was convenient and very steady compared to a few days when the trains were not running. You should also consider how often the ferry runs, because how often will you be working late and do you have a backup should you work later than the ferry schedule.
