Routes, Cost, Environmental Impact…and Parking
by Max Cea and Dave Zornow
The Village of Nyack collaborated with a team of Columbia University graduate students in 2015 to examine the feasibility of creating a Nyack/Tarrytown and Nyack/New York City ferry service. Last week we looked at the long history of ferries in our region. In this installment, we’ll look at some of the students’ conclusions regarding potential ridership, parking and traffic implications, trip lengths and fare structures for a 21st century revival of a centuries-old means to get across the river and down to Manhattan.
