Brooklyn community leaders huddled in the blistering cold at the entrance to Canarsie Pier on Dec. 19 to say they will not be forgotten in their pursuit of fast ferry service.

Calling South Brooklyn a transportation desert, the group is urging Mayor-elect Eric Adams to ensure residents have equal access to the same water transit that can be found in other parts of the city.

“Mayor-elect Eric Adams, we’re here to call on you to bring a fast ferry to Canarsie Pier. You had a statement released about two years ago to say that you’re gonna support the idea of bringing a fast ferry to Canarsie. Now it’s time to deliver,” said Jibreel Jalloh, a member of Flossy Organization, an advocacy group fighting to bring resources to Canarsie.
