Last Friday, the Roosevelt Island NYC Ferry service was suspended due to a
mechanical issue for the second time that week.
2nd time this week mechanical problems at Roosevelt Island
landing caused service suspension. Service resumed a few hours later the

Service was still suspended today. I asked the NYC Ferry operator:
The Roosevelt Island NYC Ferry landing is suspended again.
do you anticipate the Ferry resuming Roosevelt Island ferry service?
What is the mechanical issue and is it the same one that caused
Roosevelt Island ferry service suspension earlier last week?…
A NYC Economic Development Corp spokesperson replied today:
NYC Ferry is working diligently to restore Roosevelt Island service as
quickly as possible. Commuters should follow NYC Ferry for immediate
updates. We apologize for any inconvenience to riders.
According to NYC Ferry:
The issue that led us to close the landing for a few hours last week is
the same issue that came up this weekend: there is a small amount of
wiring on the landing that we need to replace. We anticipate that we
will be able to make this
repair in the next couple of days, allowing us to re-open the landing
