Covering the LoHud commute

Ferry to Ossining restarts tomorrow. Not to Beacon yet.


The Haverstraw-Ossining ferry passengers will board the boat again tomorrow after more than two weeks of taking a bus instead, Metro-North announced.

Since Jan. 4, they have had to take a bus between the Haverstraw parking lot and the Tarrytown train station because that cold snap we just finished shivering through formed too much ice in the Hudson River.

In fact, the Newburgh-Beacon ferry riders are not so lucky. They’ll have to continue crossing the river by the buses provided until the ice still caking the river up by Newburgh thaws some more.
