Massive ice floes are lining the Williamsburg and Greenpoint waterfront after weeks of freezing temperatures.

This February has been among the coldest ever recorded in New York, and has wreaked havoc on Brooklyn.

The ice got so thick on the banks of the East River that the East River Ferry suspended service “until further notice” on Tuesday, and it remains stopped.

Reasonable discourse

Mike from Williamsburg says:
Remember when De Blasio wanted to base New York's future transportation on ferries because he's too afraid to take on the car parking activists?

Daily Rider from Dumbo says:
The ERF should refund monthly ticket holders as there has never been a precedent for this.
When speaking to a representative at ERF I was told. " we don't give refunds ". As this has never occurred before, I suggest on behalf of the monthly commuter community that ERF reconsider their position on this.

I guess it's good that the other "ty from pps" is sticking with generally amusing comments rather than offensive.
