The South Ferry – Whitehall Street station, which many Brooklyn Cyclones fans use to get to road games against the Staten Island Yankees at RCB Ballpark, will have it’s main entrance closed for the next 9 months as the MTA looks to rebuild the South Ferry terminal station that was destroyed.
Fans who plan on using the Staten Island Ferry can still use the South Ferry – Whitehall Street station, but will no longer be able to use the escalators that lead directly out on to Peter Minuit Plaza. The transfer between the 1 & R will not be affected.
Fans who use the R train will have to use the exit that leaves them on Whitehall Street near One New York Plaza.
These new exit routes will add no more than 90 seconds to someone’s walk from the subway station to the ferry terminal.
Fans who are not big on stairs can also consider using the nearby Bowling Green Station, which is served by the 4 & 5 trains.
During the 2014 season, fans had to find alternate routes to Whitehall Street station, as the R train did not stop run in between Manhattan & Brooklyn and there was no R service to the station on weekends.
Fans must also make sure to check Brooklyn Baseball Banter the 2 weekends the Cyclones will have games in Staten Island for Travel Updates, as the 1 does not always run to South Ferry and that the N & Q may be rerouted to Whitehall Street station.
