As you move around the Manhattan shoreline you will see water taxis here and there. The ones we saw were bright yellow like the road taxis, but on water there is rarely a traffic jam. We took a Circle Line Ferry Cruise and had no need for a water taxi, but it would be a nice way to travel.
The New York Water Taxi offers commuter service between Manhattan and other points along New York City’s coastline.
It is great fun.
Here are some of the stops the water taxi makes along the East River.
• The Hunters Point Pier in Queens
• The East 35th Street Pier in Kips Bay, Manhattan
• The Schaefer Landing in Williamsburg, Brooklyn
• The Fulton Ferry Landing in Brooklyn
• The Wall Street Ferry Pier at the Financial District in Manhattan
