The Bronx Ferry at Clason Point

I went to the Mayor’s Town Hall at Stevenson HS on May 24, 2017. Good turn out, good questions and, for the most part, good responses. I was disappointed the Mayor, Commissioners and other elected officials generally lacked knowledge or were unwilling to share information about the Ferry, which will BEGIN OPERATION JUNE 2018. There was no suggestion there was any plan to mitigate traffic, improve parking or amend/improve bus service in Clason Point. Elected officials were also unaware of the Shorehaven Condominiums’ proposed relationship and responsibilities to Clason Point Park ball field and waterfront esplanade. As a community, we need to get together and discuss this before unacceptable, last minute “solutions” are thrown on the table.

I have contacted the offices of several city and elected officials and have not received any responses. We will reach out to them again. If they continue to avoid and evade this interest in information regarding the Bronx Ferry we will move to the next level. We will identify who was willing to listen and help and who turned a deaf ear to community concerns.

Because of lack of information, we have established The Friends of Clason Point Park to protect our community. The FCPP will hold a meeting in the coming weeks. We will posts and circulate meeting notices. All community members are invited to attend.

    I have a concern regarding the new Clason Point ferry coming to my community in 2018. I have been living in Clason Point for 40 years now and we have a problem with parking as it is. We have homeowners that have tenants and the number of vehicles now parking in our neighborhoods is crazy.

    Once the ferry starts, what’s going to happen with the people coming from other areas to get on the ferry. They will be parking their cars in front of homes for hours and the homeowners will be scrounging for parking. This was not a well thought out plan and the people that live in my neighborhood will suffer for it.

    We pay property taxes so that we can have the luxury of parking in front of our homes and enjoy the tranquility of living in a small, residential area. This is only going to create havoc. I’m certainly not looking for to this.
