Passenger safety on Staten Island Ferry 'trumps all else,' DOT pledges
from Staten Island Advance
Alarm bells did not ring for riders of the Staten Island Ferry after a South Korean combined-use ferry and cargo ship capsized and sank Apr. 16, leaving 113 confirmed dead, and over 190 others either missing or believed trapped inside the vessel, the country's Yonhap News Agency reported. From daily commuters to tourists, Staten Island Ferry passengers feel in safe hands while traveling across the harbor on the fleet of vessels that the city Department of Transportation calls "the safest it can be."
