Why should the residents of Greenpoint and Williamsburg have all the fun? Brooklyn Borough Pres Marty Markowitz wants ferry service in southern Brooklyn, too, at the city's expense. Now State Senator Marty Golden is backing the proposal, which would send ferries from Manhattan to Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Coney Island, Sheepshead Bay, and Canarsie. The city has already decreed that the ridership of such a ferry wouldn't be worth the cost, but hey, it's good to have dreams. [BK Daily]
