CB 14 Head Decries Ferry End

This letter was sent to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg by the district manager of Community Board 14.

Dear Mayor Bloomberg,

Community Board 14 strongly opposes the planned canceling of funding for the Rockaway Ferry service.

Our community is poorly served by public transportation. The very fact that a resident of Nassau or Western Suffolk County can commute via public transportation in less time than a resident of Rockaway can to Manhattan, speaks volumes to how poorly we are served. This ferry was a quick and an efficient mode of transportation that should be expanded, not ended.

Please reconsider this cut. I thank you in advance for attention to and assistance in this matter.
