City Wants ‘Excursion’ Boats at Brooklyn Pier

pier City Wants ‘Excursion’ Boats at Brooklyn PierMake way for booze cruises. The city’s Economic Development Corporation is searching for a company to set up shop for “excursion services” leaving from the Brooklyn Army Terminal in South Brooklyn.

The EDC yesterday issued the request for proposals, which is not specific in what exactly is envisioned there other than saying that the EDC is looking for a company “to operate excursions, educational boat services, and/or other waterborne vessels intended for public use.”

The boats would dock at Pier 4 at the terminal, which is also home to a NY Water Taxi commuter stop. The Pier is west of Borough Park in Brooklyn.

We’re still waiting to hear back from the EDC with any elaboration on the RFP.
