Just played my first game with Mermaids and my question is in the title, are mermaids buildings adjacent in endgame scoring if they form a town over the river? Does the town tile make them directly adjacent just like a bridge would?

I'm pretty sure it doesn't but my wife said it makes Mermaids suck and I started to think about it too much so now I'm not sure anymore.

You only need indirect adjacency for endgame scoring.

Answer is: yes.

In final scoring you determine number of your structures directly or indirectly (by the shipping or tunnels/carpets when playing dwarves/fakirs) connected

They must be. Mermaids start with 1 shipping, and the town forming ability essentially requires the two areas to have at most 1 distance.
