Arthur Imperatore – Founder of NY Waterway

Since colonial times ferries were a primary means of travel between New Jersey and New York. For much of the 19th and 20th centuries, many of those ferries were run by railroads. The ferry services disappeared in the 1960s but in 1986 a new company, NY Waterway, brought passenger boat transportation back to the Hudson River. The man behind the company is Arthur Imperatore, Sr. Not only is he the founder, but at 90 years of age he’s still actively involved as president and CEO.
