Goldman Sachs just bought two shiny new private ferries to transport staff from its Manhattan outpost to bank’s offices in Jersey City, Here Is The City reports.One of the 70-foot vessels is called Jersey; the other is called York.
They’ve been bought to make sure that the Goldman coterie arrives at work on time apparently, because, as we know, “limousines can’t float.”
According to Here is the City,
[I]n addition to the required sensitivity training for the crews operating these private ferries, the boats are equipped with plush booths, flat panel TV screens, well appointed cabins, flash loos, and come complete with one other vital thing that the public ferries used by other firm employees allegedly do not have — fully functioning state-of-the-art life rafts.
Non-Goldman bankers who are Jersey bound, don’t go rolling your eyes just yet: apparently there will be a couple of places for non-Blankfeinians on the boat too.
