Jokes aside, Pete Davidson and Colin Jost’s vision for a floating entertainment venue on a decommissioned Staten Island Ferry is slowly but surely taking shape. It’s been nearly two years since the comedic duo, along with partners including comedy-club owner Paul Italia and architect Ron Castellano, embarked on this unique venture, purchasing the ferry for $280,000.

The Journey So Far

The ferry, named the John F. Kennedy, has seen its share of headlines since Davidson and Jost announced their purchase. Initially, the project was met with skepticism, particularly as the ferry remained docked at Staten Island, seemingly untouched. Locals reported little to no activity at the site, fueling rumors of a stalled project.

However, Davidson revealed on a podcast with Seth Meyers that behind the scenes, there was significant progress, including regular conference calls and detailed planning. Davidson noted that he and Colin Jost were very stoned when they bought the ferry boat and wished itturns into a Transformer and gets the f— out of there, so I can stop paying for it.” Jost replied with an Instagram post, “Is it worse that I was actually stone-cold sober?” he also begged fans to come and check them out on the “Ferry Money Tour!”
