We, the people of Northwestern Queens request the City of New York consider our petition to add a ferry stop between Astoria and East 90th Street. Recently, the City announced the addition of a stop at Brooklyn Navy Yard along the Astoria/Wall Street route. While this is significant - adding access to downtown Brooklyn - it ignores an important connection that has been missing for far too long - easy access to the Upper East Side and East Harlem. The stop would take less than five minutes to complete and has the benefit of giving Queens residents access to City food markets and retail establishments, which are noticeably sparse in the Hallets Cove area. With the population growth in Astoria, we believe the route would offer residents a needed outlet for additional services.
