This cruise is relaxing, very informative and a classy way to see Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. The beautiful timber boat, the excellent commentary from a very knowledgeable architect (Joseph), the scenery as we circumnavigated Manhattan, all made the cruise feel very special

Boat ride around Manhattan in an extremely comfortable boat with an experienced guide. What could be better! I'm a life-long NYer and would recommend this to those who live in the city or are visiting. A perfect way to spend a few hours.

neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
