Giving Back

NYC Ferry envisions a clean and clear future in New York City. Respect Our Planet is our adopted environmental program, in which we partner with other waterfront organizations to do volunteer work around the city as a way of giving back to the communities we serve. We promote environmental stewardship and through our efforts to minimize environmental impact we encourage staff and visitors to adopt green practices that will benefit the city of NY.
