Staten Island Ferry Resumes Service

    NEW YORK - MAY 08:  A Staten Island Ferry heads towards Manhattan following the crash of another ferry into a dock in the city's borough of Staten Island on May 8, 2010 in New York City. Dozens were injured in the morning crash in which the ferry was returning from Manhattan. This is the same ferry, the Andrew J. Barbieri, which in October 2003 crashed into the pier at the same terminal in St. George, Staten Island at full speed, resulting in the death of 11 people while injuring another 70.

    New York City is, step by step, moving toward a point of normalcy. The city announced that the Staten Island Ferry will resume service Friday at noon, launching every half hour in both directions. The borough, New York City’s least populated, was one of the hardest hit from the storm. In addition to sustaining devastating damage, 19 people from Staten Island were killed—accounting for almost half of the city’s death toll from the storm. That includes two children, ages 2 and 4, who were swept out of their mother’s arms by floodwaters and found dead Thursday yards apart from each other.
