New York Water Taxi has jaunty boats painted to evoke old-fashioned New York checker cabs. They are bright yellow with a trim of black and white checks. The company were founded in 2002.
They have their homeport and two ferry stops in Red Hook.
Their homeport is the the Erie Basin at the end of Van Brunt Street.
Their Red Hook stops are behind Fairway Market and at IKEA.
They run a daily shuttle between Wall Street's Pier 11 and Brooklyn's IKEA. They also regularly run excursions such as cruises around the Statue of Liberty, and run the excursion boat ZEPHYR.
