Best way to get back to Queens or Brooklyn during a blackout - 2004
NEW YORK WATER TAXI
If newsworthy events halt the subways and snarl bridges, scoot across the formidable barrier of the East River in a NEW YORK WATER TAXI. The plush seats are cozy, the views are seductive, and there are nine Manhattan ports. Board at 34th Street and you'll debark in Queens about three minutes later; for weekend disasters, the schedule deems you'll aim for DUMBO.
