Schumer Asks Coast Guard to Clear River of Ice

United States Senator Charles Schumer held a press conference on Thursday asking the Coast Guard to make efforts to begin cutting and clearing the ice on the Hudson River around the Haverstraw-Ossining Ferry. While at the terminal in Haverstraw, Schumer stated that the frequent suspension of services provided by the ferry in the winter is an inconvenience for local residents who commute to the other side of the river and back each day and it would be ideal to have the ferry running year-round. A spokesman for the Coast Guard stated to the Journal News about the press conference that they are doing their best with the resources they have access to and their main priority is to keep the river open for supplies, such as oil to heat homes, which has to be shipped up the Hudson.
