East River Ferry.

Kris Venezia, WFUV

Commuting into Manhattan can be a major pain for some New Yorkers.

There always seems to be traffic on the highway, the subway never seems to come on time, and battling for a spot on the bus can feel like trying to get a good spot at a Dave Mathews Band concert, but for Stewart Becker, his commute is smooth sailing.

He takes the East River Ferry service every day from Williamsburg - Brooklyn to Manhattan. He said the ferry gives him a chance to kick-back before and after work
