NY Water Taxi cuts rates from Brooklyn to Manhattan

The New York Water Taxi cut rates from Brooklyn piers to midtown Manhattan to encourage more travel into Red Hook.

Riders who had been able to pay $31 for an all-day pass to take a ferry between midtown and Red Hook can now opt to pay $9 a stop to go from docks at 39th Street and Wall Street to DUMBO and Red Hook.

Taking a ferry from Red Hook through the entire route would be $9.

The New York Water Taxi also runs the IKEA ferry from Wall Street to Red Hook, which will remain $5.
