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.

This was such a fabulous experience! I'm a local of NYC and I *love* to be on the water, so when I saw that there was an opportunity to participate in a regatta race I was thrilled! Captain Peter, Tom, and the rest of the crew were *so* good to us. The weather was perfect, the included lunch was delicious, and it was wonderful to be sailing with a glass of champagne (or three!) on my birthday! I couldn't have asked for a better time. I'll definitely bring my out of town friends on the 'regular' sail, and I'm tempted to just go myself whenever the mood strikes!
Take advantage of this rare opportunity to sail as a guest aboard the Adirondack_ _or the Adirondack III while she participates in a Classic Regatta!
Join the crew for a lunch of fruit, gourmet sandwiches, chips, and dessert as Classic Harbor Line’s highly experienced racing crew and captains compete in the “New York Classic Week” races.
The participants in this race are all classic sailing vessels of varying size and sail plans, so expect to see other schooners, sloops, ketches, and fifes from the turn-of-the-century vying for marks across the New York Harbor. The stunning bright work and beautiful classic lines of these historic vessels have been specially maintained by their owners and offer great photo opportunities! Races are scheduled Wednesday through Sunday with a 12:00 gun. Each race each day will have a different course with the new York Harbor.
Some of the famous sites you’ll view along the way are:
- The New York City skyline
- 20-acre Battery Park at the southern tip of Manhattan, where artillery has been stationed over the centuries
- Ellis Island, the immigrant doorway to America from 1892 to 1954
- The Statue of Liberty, a French gift that arrived in New York Harbor in 1885 and has come to represent our nation’s freedom and ideals
- The New York City Waterfalls
Complimentary champagne, wine, beer and soda will be provided. (One quick note: they will serve a few rounds, but it is not an unlimited booze-cruise. They aim to create an elegant, relaxing, peaceful, and safe experience for all of our guests.)
Join Classic Harbor Line for a New York Classic Week Race Aboard the Adirondack or Adirondack III, and you’ll experience NYC like never before.
