NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The preliminary design for the new Staten Island Ferry does not include outdoor seating, and many riders can’t even imagine not being able to get some fresh air.
“A ferry without outdoor seating seating? Are they out of their mind?” rider Mary Miller told WCBS 880 reporter Jim Smith.
She wants the next generation boats to keep the outdoor areas.
“The ferry, the water, the sky, the birds. If we don’t have outdoor seating, we might was well just swim,” she said.
