Ice Breakers on the Hudson
The Star-Ledger reported today that ice breaking tug boats are being employed to keep ferries moving across the Hudson River. This hasn't been necessary in years.
In spite of the use of ice breakers, the only dependable ferry services are running from Weehawken, Hoboken, and Jersey City. The longer ferry services, from the Highlands, Belford, and Bayshore, have not been able to operate for some time.
