My Uncle Pete (Sauss) was part owner of the Tottenville Ferry. I was aloud too pilot the ferry to Perth Amboy, at the time (early sixties) I was 9 years old. He told me to give one short pull on the horn I gave it two and that was the last time for me as pilot.. Now I'm the last Pete Sauss that piloted the TOTTENVILLE FERRY.

I grew up in Tottenville and used to ride the ferry to Perth Amboy. Yes, change the cars and it looked the same in the 60s.

Fare was 5 cents -- just like at the other end of the island.

LOL ~ I was not arond in 1914, but I can remember Mom driving my older sister to the Perth Amboy Ferry to go to St. Mary's HS, & I swear it looked just like this in 1962 ~ less the Model Ts....and the Hotel was there too.
