NEW YORK — One of the iconic Staten Island Ferry boats is up for auction with a big price drop.
The John F. Kennedy was built in 1965 and made trips between Staten Island and Manhattan for more than five decades.
It was the oldest ferry in the fleet before it was retired last summer.
The JFK is nearly 300 feet in length and is capable of carrying more 3,000 passengers at a time.
However, she is not in great shape due to mechanical issues.
The ferry is being sold in "as is" and "where is" condition.
The New York City Department of Citywide Administrative Services dropped the minimum price to $125,000 from the $250,000 price it was asking last week.
The auction runs through Wednesday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m.
