First, the harbor cruise on the Manhattan was delightful. Unlike more touristy attractions the yacht (built in 2005) is a pleasure to behold. The cabin is air-conditioned and there was more than enough open-deck space forward once we got...continued
Make the most of Chelsea with two tours in one. Start with a 90-minute cruise on the1920s-style yacht Manhattan. Her glassed-in observatory features a full bar, breath-taking views & Gatsby-esque glamor!
Highlights along the route:
- West Side Starchitecture on the Hudson: Frank Gehry’s IAC, Standard Hotel & Richard Meier’s Glass Towers
- Battery Park, South Street Seaport & Financial District
- Governor’s Island, Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
- The Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges of the East River
Professor Matthew Postal greets you at the dock when you return. He is a renowned architectural historian & author of:
- Guide to New York City Landmarks, 2009
- Ten Architectural Walking Tours in Manhattan, 2009
Starting at Chelsea Piers, once home to the White Star and Cunard Lines, Matt leads you on a 90 minute walking tour through Chelsea and through the story that leads up to the High Line Park – a former industrial railway of the 1930’s that is now Manhattan’s newest and most celebrated park.
Following the High Line route, you pass through the notable Art Gallery District, fashionable condominiums and past several historic landmarks, including the General Theological Seminary and Chelsea Market – where the Oreo was invented and current home of the Food Network, Morimoto & Emeril Live.
The walking tour ends at Gansevoort Street, in the heart of the famed Meat Packing District. Guests are then invited to walk, explore, photograph & enjoy the High Line at their own pace.
