Roosevelt Island Ferry Terminal Sign Spotted, Dock Construction Under Way, Service On Schedule For August - It's Time To Get On The Ferry!!!!!!

As reported July 14, construction work has started on the Roosevelt Island Ferry dock

and service is on schedule to begin in August, the exact date is not yet known.

The Roosevelt Island Twitterverse even spotted the future Roosevelt Island Ferry Terminal sign!!!!
I think Roosevelt Islanders will agree with Bay Rizz that it's Time To Take The Ferry!!!!!
The Roosevelt Island Ferry route is Astoria, Roosevelt Island, Long Island City, East 34th Street, Wall Street and back.

A midtown bus shuttle will operate from the East 34th street Ferry Dock
More info about Roosevelt Island Ferry service at these prior posts and from ferry operator NYC Ferry web site where you can purchase and download tickets for same price as the subway - $2.75 but the Metro Card is not accepted on the Ferry, at least not yet.

UPDATE 7/24:
