Rochester Ferry Dead

We're a little late with this news, but thought it was worth a final post about the much maligned Rochester Ferry. From the ferry's web site:

On Tuesday, January 10, 2006 Mayor Robert Duffy made the very difficult decision to discontinue ferry service. All of the parties involved including former Mayor William A. Johnson Jr. and the Rochester Ferry Company had the best of intentions. But, the sad reality was that the ferry lost $10 million in 10 months and that was deemed too great a financial risk to the city of Rochester.
