Chartered Ferry Service In Glen Cove

The waterfront in Glen Cove is being put to use with a new chartered ferry service for private events. 

 

Seastreak, a leader in revitalizing fast passenger ferry services in the New York metropolitan area, chartered a special corporate event and sightseeing cruises from the Glen Cove ferry dock at Garvies Point last week, with the inaugural event taking place on the bright and sunny morning of Sept. 12.

 

“Having a company like Seastreak offering a chartered service from Glen Cove’s waterfront is a testament to the decade long revitalization efforts that have taken place along beautiful Hempstead Harbor,” Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi said.

“By welcoming NY Waterways this summer and now Seastreak, we are able to show off our magnificent new maritime facilities to two of the region’s leading ferry companies.”

 

Mayor Suozzi was on site at the ferry dock prior to departure.

 

“Introducing Seastreak’s chartered services to the City of Glen Cove is another way that we are inviting residents and the surrounding communities back to the waterfront to enjoy all that it has to offer. Our team, the city and the city’s partners at the county, state and federal level are proud to restore access to this rare stretch of coastline,” said Scott Rechler, chairman and CEO of RXR Realty, the developer of the 52-acre Garvies Point site.

 

Seastreak vessels are available for private charter for corporate meetings, holiday parties and other special occasions. Options include traveling through Lower Manhattan Harbor to such sites as the Statue of Liberty, Governors Island, the tall ships of the South Street Seaport or the beautiful sights of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket as well as various destinations such as Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos, Nantucket Island, Block Island, Atlantic City and either of New York ‘s baseball stadiums. 

 

“We are delighted to be here,” said Seastreak President James Barker. “We welcome the opportunity to show the community that our season is still under way through the fall and to show off one of our beautiful vessels. Our connection with RXR as well as the City of Glen Cove is very meaningful to Seastreak, and we take pride in the world-class service we provide.”

 

While the service is a first step in providing ferry service from Glen Cove, the second phase of the ferry terminal building is still at least a year away from completion, though it is expected to begin

this fall. A ferry operator for daily commuters has not yet been secured.

News

Veterans, police, residents and elected officials turned out for the renaming of Route 107/ Arterial Highway for Glen Cove’s most honored hero, Sergeant Major Daniel Joseph Daly, in a ceremony that took place on Wednesday, Nov. 12.

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.


Sports

The Glen Cove High School girls basketball team was invited to participate in the prestigious KSA Holiday Basketball Tournament that will be held in Orlando, FL, this December. The tournament brings to the court teams from all over the United States that would otherwise not be competing.
