Tottenville Ferry


Ferry between Perth Amboy, N.J., and Tottenville, Staten Island, N.Y. [old green ferry on water], Digital ID 104698, New York Public LibraryThe Tottenville Ferry ran between Tottenville and Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Tottenville residents used to shop in Perth Amboy, using the ferry. The ferry went out of service sometime in the 1960s. I have a distinct memory form the early 1960s of my father bringing the family car to a mechanic in Tottenville, and the two of us riding the ferry to Perth Amboy and back again. I don’t know why I remember it; maybe it was just nice spending some “quality” time with just me and my Dad.
