It's a smaller vessel than most of the other boat/cruise trips available, which makes it a more intimate experience that we thoroughly enjoyed, but the downside is that if you are prone to seasickness, then beware, because you will feel a lot more of the waves, especially from the wakes of others.

  • The greater waterfront access allowed by new parks and recreation piers including the ecologically driven features designed by leading landscape architects
  • The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the newest waterfront monument: Roosevelt Island’s FDR Four Freedoms Park
  • NYC’s engineering masterpieces including the Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
  • The adaptation of the High Line as an elevated, linear park and its role in the development of West Chelsea and Hudson Yards.
