Red Hook Water Ferry: Curse Those Pesky Tides

Hold off on that move to Red Hook for just a sec. Blogger Amy Langfield rides the nascent water ferry and finds that it ain't ready for prime time:

I asked a guy on the sidewalk if he knew where to get the water taxi, and he said sometimes it goes to the right (beyond the monster puddle) and sometimes to the left, on the other side of the warehouses used for a weekend art gallery. I walked to the left and found two water taxis docked and a sign at the dock saying "Do Not Enter." I hollered at a guy working on the boat and he said that the tide was too low this morning, so the taxi might come there, but that I should go wait at the other dock in case the captain docks there.
