Saturday August 8, 2009 / 8:00pmNew York Water Taxi Statue by Night Cruise
How was your experience?
This event was fun. Tickets were easy to get at the Circle Line Booth which was only a few yards away from the Water Taxi meeting place. This is the second time I have used Goldstar and so far getting the tickets has been extremely easy. It got a little cool on the boat when the sun went down and definitely very breezy with a few choppy spots. Not enough seats on the top level the night we went (where it was open) but most people ended up wanting to stand at the railing anyway (including us). The music they played on and off in between a commentator speaking (or rapping in our case) was maybe a little too eclectic trying to please too many tastes (i.e. rock/50's/70's dance music/even opera was mentioned but fortunately that didn't end up playing! ;-). But really the only small problem I had with the ride was that on the top level they had three lights on the edge of the cabin roof trained on the crowd with the one in the middle being VERY bright, I found it irritating and not very conducive to nightime viewing.
