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.
