A WPIX-TV investigation finds that the six-mile ferry trip across New York harbor, which is free of charge, may be a dangerous way to travel. "The seven-ferry system is the busiest in the world," the story reveals, but is no longer required to abide by the many basic safety standards. The main findings are that the ferryboats have quite insufficient life raft capacity for the thousands of passengers, life jackets have not been inspected for years, and "a major ferry accident is possible with disastrous results."
