NYC Ferry stop in Greenpoint suddenly closes after property sold to new proprietor

The NYC Ferry stop in Greenpoint, Brooklyn was suddenly covered throughout the end of the week — after the land was offered to another proprietor, the administration said.

“Because of impermanent limitations to the Greenpoint dock, ship administration to and from the Greenpoint landing will be suspended until additional notification,” administrator Hornblower said in an early Sunday morning tweet reporting the conclusion.

“Tragically access has been limited by the new proprietor of the wharf,” the organization said in a subsequent tweet hours after the fact.

Land firm Lendlease bought the whole square where the wharf is found a week ago for $110.8 million, The Real Deal revealed not long ago.

“I am outraged about this. This property and wharf has a long history (counting the passage falling into the East River in 2014),” neighborhood city councilman Stephen Levin said on Twitter.

“I have never heard that the city… didn’t have progressing lawful admittance to the dock.”

Video presented on Twitter by Levin staff member Elizabeth Adams, who is likewise hurrying to succeed him, shows a ship vessel bypassing the harbor — and a man on the pontoon waving off would-be riders on the shore.

Gotten some information about the conclusion at a question and answer session Monday, Mayor de Blasio said the city is “cheerful” access can be reestablished “today.”

“The objective is to settle it rapidly and get that ship stop once again into administration ideally as ahead of schedule as today,” Hizzoner said.

Lendlease didn’t quickly restore a solicitation for input Monday.
