The East River Ferry is celebrating six months of service, and has announced that you can climb aboard their vessels for free today, all day, and they'll even be giving you free coffee from Brooklyn Roasting Company this morning. Even if the ferry came in last in our commuter race (by a half hour!), it is the most scenic way to get to where you're going. Plus, even though it may rain a little today, it's going to be a downright balmy 53 degrees!
