NYC Ferry Landing at Roosevelt Island Is Still Closed


On Friday, January 8th, NYC Ferry posted a cryptic message: “Due to a mechanical issue, NYC Ferry service at Roosevelt Island is suspended. We are working as quickly as possible to resolve the issue and will post on all channels when the landing is reopened. Please check and the NYC Ferry app for updates.”

Roosevelt Island Ferry Landing Still Closed

NYC Ferry service is currently bypassing Roosevelt Island because of an unidentified “mechanical issue.”

NYC Ferry’s Friday alert lacked all detail, except that the problem was mechanical. The landing has few moving parts, but this marks the second failure this month. The first was resolved in a few hours. After a few days, this one is not.

On a blustery winter weekend, the lack of ferry service had limited impact. But with commuters returning to work today, many will be forced onto crowded subways and tram cabins.

NYC Ferry has not offered any timeline for a return to normal service, and we still don’t know what “mechanical issue” forced the shutdown. We will get back to you as soon as there is more news on this.
