The City of Glen Cove is relieved to hear that an agreement has been reached between the LIRR and the MTA and that the potential workers strike has been called off effective this afternoon, (7/17/14) per Gov. Cuomo press conference.
During the times when it seemed that a strike was likely the City worked very closely with the MTA and senior elected officials to ensure an effective contingency plan was in place for our residents, whose concerns are always our top priority.
The Mayor’s staff quickly initiated an action plan with input from Glen Cove Police Department, Glen Cove Chief Harbormaster, City Attorney, and others to address the critical requirements to offer an alternative commute while minimizing any inconvenience to our residents. This event has generated significant interest in the Glen Cove ferry service planned for 2015. Please keep up to date with these developments by visiting this site.
Welcome to Glen Cove ferry!
This site is a guide with the most up-to-date information on the Glen Cove Ferry Terminal and BoatBasin. After twenty years in the making, the Glen Cove Ferry Terminal is a vital part of Glen Cove’s Waterfront Redevelopment Vision. The newly completed ferry terminal lies on part of 52 acres of land along the waterfront redevelopment site. With the help of federal, state and county agencies, as well as our incredibly supportive elected officials, and our redevelopment partner, RXR Realty, the City of Glen Cove has been able to completely remediate this portion of Glen Cove Creek, and it is now ready to support new residential and commercial use.
