New Ferry for NY-New Jersey Commute

August 24, 2016

WEEHAWKEN, N.J. — A new ferry soon will be carrying commuters between New Jersey and New York City.

New York Waterway’s 400-passenger Betsy Ross is open for inspection Aug. 24 at the Port Imperial Ferry Terminal in Weehawken. The Betsy Ross will go into service next week.

The 109-foot vessel has climate-controlled cabins and heated handrails. A marble bar serves coffee in the morning and cocktails in the afternoon.

The ferry’s sister ship, Molly Pitcher, began service last year carrying commuters from Middletown to Paulus Hook in Jersey City, the World Financial Center in Lower Manhattan and West 39th Street in Midtown Manhattan.

The Betsy Ross and Molly Pitcher were built by Yank Marine in Cape May County.


BALTIMORE — Five people were wounded, none critically, in a shooting that interrupted a homecoming week celebration at Morgan State University in Baltimore on Tuesday and prompted an hourslong lockdown of the historically Black college.
