Thanks, Mr. G. Too bad they can't at least give an estimate...like a few days...a week...a month...
I feel for the people who commute.
Well that just sucks! Hope it's fixed by October.
Weren't there two boats going back and forth in the past?
And when reopening there will be fewer hours of availability and I am hearing about a $2 fee.
It's killing small business on the westbank, particularly B&Bs and bars who rely on people having easy and reliable transit across the river without using the bridges.
Wouldn't you know it. Every trip to New Orleans, I have a list of places that I want to see, that require just a bit of extra effort to get to. Took me years to get to the Rock'nBowl, Oak Street, Mardi Gras World, and on and on. I found that I could reliably get to two sites per trip. For my upcoming trip, you guessed it, the Algiers Ferry had risen to number one, followed by Vaughan's. Now I'll have to come up with a standby number three.
This is a bummer. I was really looking forward to visiting Crown and Anchor in the fall, when the next season of Doctor Who starts, as apparently they have it live when it screens on BBC. There goes that idea.
Kjosker, do let me know when you're planning to be at Vaughan's. It's about 10 blocks away from where I live.
Wow! I feel really bad for the people who don't have cars.
This is not good news at all! I hope they get it fixed soon. There used to be two ferrys but they shut one route down completely. I feel really bad for the people on the West Bank who have to commute...and it must be just awful for the businesses over there.
Hopefully it'll be fixed by October!
Remember folks, this is affecting people's lives and businesses. Whining about needing to alter future vacation itineraries is a tad insensitive.
