School children name new NYC ferries
School children in Brooklyn were given the task of naming new ferries slated to service New York City.
The city reached out to second-graders across the five boroughs for ideas on what to name the new ferries, including two schools in Brooklyn--P.S. 170 in Bay Ridge and P.S. 971 in Sunset Park.
Mayor Bill de Blasio released a video on his official Facebook page to make the announcement. The names of the first five ferries will be;
-Urban Journey ;
-Waves of Wonder; and
Four ferry lines, including the south Brooklyn line, are expected to launch this summer. The remaining two lines will launch next summer.
