"Saturday Night Live" stars Pete Davidson and Colin Jost have bought a decommissioned Staten Island Ferry.
The two, along with comedy club owner Paul Italia, plan to turn the ferry into New York City's next hottest club.
Jost, Davidson and Italia put down Wednesday's winning bid for the John F. Kennedy, a 277-foot (84-meter) vessel that shuttled commuters between the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Staten Island from 1965 until it was taken out of service last August.
"The Staten Island Ferry is definitely something iconic," Italia, a real estate investor and co-owner of the restaurant and comedy club The Stand, said Friday. "We wanted to figure out a way to save it and to do something special with it."
