If you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of Staten Island history, now is your chance! The Herbert H. Lehman ferry boat is now for sale on eBay. It was built in 1965 for a cost of $42 million and the starting bid is only $500,000. What a bargain! It was retired from service 4 years ago and has been in the Ferry old age home ever since. It’s looking for a new owner to put some life back into it. It’s 297 feet long and 69 feet wide and it’s still bright orange. Cute! But what would you do with an old ferry? Don’t worry, we’ve been thinking about this for years.
C’mon we really need to see a rogue ferry wandering around the harbor. Place your bids, people!
