Queens Post: City Pausing Controversial Plans to Construct New Ferry Terminal at Hunters Point South
The NYC Economic Development Corp. is pausing its plans to demolish the existing ferry terminal at Hunter Points South Park and is reevaluating its plans to construct a replacement dock 150 feet away in front of the main boardwalk by the Oval.
The EDC, which oversees the city’s ferry routes, had been looking to begin construction of the new terminal in the fall of 2023, which would see a large docking barge built about 150 feet north of the existing site. Two boats would be able to dock at the barge.
The current ferry terminal, known as Hunters Point South, needs to be dismantled since it is coming to the end of its useful life, according to the EDC. The terminal is located in front of the beach volleyball court near the waterfront café.
