Pols push for ferry funding to Governors Island in final state budget

Activists and legislators are pushing for the Brooklyn ferry service to Governors Island to be fully funded in this year’s final state budget to ensure Brooklynites have direct access to the green space. 

State Sen. Andrew Gounardes was joined by Assembly Member Jo Anne Simon and Council Member Lincoln Restler on Friday morning at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 to call for state funding for the seasonal weekend ferry service that is currently offered by the Trust for Governors Island.
