History of the Staten Island Ferry Explored in New Book

Local author shares the history of the ferry using stunning, vintage images

 

 

Telling a story in pictures is Staten Island Ferry, thenewest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series. The book by the Staten Island Museum is set to release on September 1, 2014. The book boasts 200 vintage images, many of which have never been published, and chronicles the history of the iconic ferry.

 

Considered the “Best Ride in New York City,” the Staten Island Ferry has been immortalized over the years in art, literature, film, and music.

 

In the 19th century, cross-bay ferry riders complained of dangerous and unreliable private service. On October 25, 1905, the newly incorporated City of New York assumed ownership of the service, and the Borough class—the Brooklyn, Bronx, Richmond, Queens, and Manhattan ferryboats—was introduced. These were the largest ferries on the East Coast and made the crossing in 22.5 minutes.

 

Today, the ferry is recognized as a New York icon and a symbol of the borough. A favorite destination for tourists, the Staten Island Ferry carries 22 million passengers annually. On a typical day, 109 trips move about 70,000 people across the harbor, making the Staten Island Ferry one of the most reliable forms of mass transit in the city.

 

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online

 

Arcadia Publishing is the leading publisher of local and regional history in the United States.  Our mission is to make history accessible and meaningful through the publication of books on the heritage of America’s people and places.  Have we done a book on your town?  Visit http://www.arcadiapublishing.com.
