    I am a native New Yorker and would like to tell a story about a ferry boat that was turned into a floating methadone clinic. This was in 1971, and there was a big outbreak of heroin use in late 1960’s and NYC was hit hard and rushed to rty and set up treatment centers but nobody wanted this clinic.There were massive demonstrations. It was first put close to the Manhattan dock of the Styaten Island Ferry, then had to move to Christopher Street in the Village. However many in the Village protested, but it stayed there for more than 1 year before moving into a building on VCCanal strret, Exactly 530 Canal st.
