East River Ferry anniversary celebrated with free ride

December 15, 2011 5:44:22 AM PST
New York City is celebrating six months of East River Ferry service with free service.

On Thursday, Council Speaker Christine Quinn and other officials are greeting riders when they arrive in Manhattan after a free ride.

The free ride celebrates that nearly a half million riders have used the ferry since it started running.

That's far more than officials expected.
