Bursting with elaborate designs and kaleidoscopic color arrangements, this exhibit in the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory at The New York Botanical Garden will delight nature lovers and enchant guests of all ages who love the beauty of nature. With the theme Key West Contemporary, you can step out of the bustling city and straight into the Florida Keys, where the dramatic beauty of a flourishing tropical garden is amplified by vibrant architecture that reflects this particular island's charm and ambience. The Enid A. Haupt Conservatory's sprawling glasshouse galleries are transformed into a modernist Key West estate garden, where an effusion of orchids -- including Vanda (rainbow orchids), Dendrobium (cane orchids) and Cymbidium (Asian corsage orchids) -- bloom among serene geometric reflecting pools, soaring angular pergolas and sleek benches.

Captain & crew very friendly and accomodating. Nice beer selection, cheap champagne though. Awesome night,perfect weather, perfect way to end a night! Very relaxing and laid back atmosphere. The down side: A few couples having full-blown make-out sessions. I mean, a few kisses here and there is okay, but otherwise, c'mon guys, we're not in high school anymore, get a room would ya?!!Otherwise, a flawless NYC experience even for us natives. Would DEFINETELY DO IT AGAIN!!!!
Climb aboard the schooner Imagine…and you’ll quickly forget the mayhem and noise of Manhattan street life as the colors before you paint a picture of the most famous city in the world.
Some of the night’s beautifully lit highlights will include:
- Chelsea Piers, a famous stretch of docks on the Hudson
- Battery Park, a green haven resting on the southern tip of Manhattan
- Ellis Island, the immigrant doorway to America from 1892 to 1954
- The Statue of Liberty, bearing the torch of America’s freedom
Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided.
The schooner will be shutting off its engines and setting sail for as much of the trip as possible.

Wind and time permitting, she will head toward Governor's Island, breeze by the Financial District and the Brooklyn Bridge on the East River.
