Hoboken Ferry Terminal reopens

The historic Hoboken Ferry Terminal reopened today for the first time since 1967.

Known originally as the Erie Lackawanna Ferry Terminal, it opened in 1907 and operated for 60 years until few commuters used ferries to get to and from work between New Jersey and New York City.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held earlier today to mark the opening of the new terminal. Passengers have been using a barge with a tent on it since ferry service resumed in 1989.

NY Waterway carries as many as 8,000 riders a day out of Hoboken. NJ Transit and PATH trains also operate out of the terminal.
