The boat, operated by Hornblower, hit the pylon at about 5 p.m. after it left Pier 11 in lower Manhattan, heading for the Rockaways. The collision left two holes in the hull of the boat, causing water to leak onto the vessel, cops said. The NYPD’s Harbor and Aviation Units and the FDNY responded and safety removed 114 passengers and seven crew members from the boat, officials said. They returned to Pier 11, and boarded two other boats. There were no injuries, according to police. recommended reading 30 people injured after NY Water Taxi crashes into Pier 79: FDNY The boat, named The Zelinsky, was not one of the new NYC Ferry vessels, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office said. “We are glad all passengers were safely disembarked and regret the inconvenience,” Melissa Grace, a spokeswoman for de Blasio, said in a statement. “NYC Ferry will operate on a normal schedule Tuesday.” Officials were pumping water from the vessel Monday night in order to move it, Grace said.
