The New York Ferry is on a slippery slope towards oblivion now that a video flaunting a jet pack's maiden voyage over the harbor and around the Statue of Liberty is making the rounds. First noted by The Verge, the jet pack is the work of the aptly-named start-up Jetpack Aviation who thought it'd be a good idea to demo their product near Lower Manhattan. These bad boys aren't up for grabs quite yet, but our bet is that when they are, the city will ban them faster than you can say d-r-o-n-e.
