Northeast Queens could soon receive a new mode of transport if this idea follows through.
Councilman Paul Vallone announced that he has received word that EDC will study the possibility of expanding NYC Ferry service to Citi Field Marina and Fort Totten.
The two possible spots were among 3,000 responses to a public survey about potential new locations.
The feasibility study will examine factors like water depths, population density, existing access to transit and travel time comparisons.
In 2014, Vallone, along with Peter Koo and former Councilwoman Julissa Ferreras-Copeland, asked EDC to conduct a pilot program for a ferry between Manhattan and Citi Field and Fort Totten.
Vallone has also previously suggested a ferry to Willets Point.
