The Greenpoint ferry pier is back up and running after it was abruptly shuttered Saturday when the new owner of the landing shut off public access.

NYC Ferry service to Greenpoint resumed at 4 p.m. today after the ferry provider and the property owner, Lendlease, reached an agreement.

Real Estate developer Lendlease had restricted NYC Ferry access to the landing, just weeks after the company bought the waterfront site at 1 Java St.– including the ferry pier.

Over the weekend, New Yorkers were unable to take a boat ride from Greenpoint. Until 4 p.m. Monday, they were told that they would have to take a shuttle bus to the Hunters Point South landing.

Lendlease told Gothamist that it was waiting on the ferry service operator, Hornblower, to provide adequate insurance documents and temporarily restricted access to the pier while it waited.

Lendlease, and its partner Aware Super, an Australian pension fund, plan to build a mixed-use tower with 800 rental units on the 2.6-acre site.
