How would you like to travel via ferry service from Manhattan to The Bronx?

The Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance has tentatively scheduled a meeting at Community Board 9’s district office at 1967 Turnbull Avenue at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 24th, to rally locals to join a community advisory board.

A representative from MWA pitched the idea to folks at CB9’s general board meeting June 20th, drawing plenty of interest, and applause, from a packed house.

Ferry Point and Soundview were highlighted as potential ferry sites, according to a comprehensive study by the city’s Economic Development Corp.

Other locations include City Island, Hunts Point, Co-op City, Orchard Beach, Yankee Stadium, Fordham Landing and Roberto Clemente State Park.
