    is there handicap parking at the ferry?

    • Anonymous

      well it’s from battery park which is a city park and I’m pretty sure it’s federal law that public places, as such, provide handicap parking and access throughout

    do the ferries start at 3 or 3:30?  two different times are posted above.

    I hope the lines aren’t ridiculous and force us to arrive late, missing the opening act!

    • Ed D.

      also how do the Bass Island ferries differ from the normal free ferry that Gov. Island does?

    The ferries are already running every hour, on the hour. Feel free to
    arrive on the island at any time. It is beautiful out and I hear they
