The Grand Street Ferry was a ferry route connecting Manhattan and Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York City, United States, joining Grand Street (Manhattan) and Grand Street (Brooklyn) across the East River.

History[edit]

The first ferry connecting Manhattan to Williamsburg was established in the early 19th century, connecting to North Second Street in Williamsburg. The Grand Street Ferry began operations in 1812, and took over and stopped the former a few years later.[1]
