NYC Comptroller continues to pick fight over $82 million boat buy for NYC Ferry

City Controller Scott Stringer is not backing down from his crusade against the heavily-subsidized NYC Ferry service.

For the second time in as many months, Stringer last week returned a proposed contract submitted by the city’s nonprofit Economic Development Corporation to spend $82 million on 19 boats for the system.

While the controller’s office does not have the authority to nix the contract, the prospective mayoral candidate alleges a lack of transparency in the way the EDC does business with the ferry’s operator, Hornblower.
