This month’s inauguration of the first NYC Ferry service between Rockaway and Lower Manhattan marks the beginning of a new era in the centuries-long history of passenger transportation on the waterways of New York and New Jersey. Join us as Capt. Maggie Flanagan and Louis Kleinmann of the Waterfront Alliance, early advocates for five-borough ferry service, introduce us to NYC Ferry and put this ambitious new plan to connect our archipelago city into perspective by linking it to the history, present use, and future potential of our waterways.

Capt. Maggie Flanagan, director of education and outreach for the Waterfront Alliance, is a licensed captain and a classroom teacher specializing in marine education, and most recently served as the South Street Seaport Museum’s director of marine education. Louis Kleinman is the Waterfront Alliance’s community liaison, managing a portfolio of more than 800 Alliance Partners, including the World Ship Society–Port of New York Branch. The Waterfront Alliance (www.waterfrontalliance.org) works to protect, transform, and revitalize our harbor and waterfront. (Michael Appleton/Mayoral Photography Office photo)
