“ANew York City Kind of Beach”
Review of Water Taxi Beach

Water Taxi Beach
Reviewed 8 January 2014

This place operates in the warmer months. You'll probably have to take a bus to find it. There's a volleyball set up as well as several restaurants. It's by a water taxi stop so if you are in Manhattan or Brooklyn you can float on over. If you're here for a week it might be a fun thing to do for 1/2 day.

We used the Water Taxi to visit different areas of New York City. DC was our guide/"Cruise Director". He has lived in New York all his life and was amazing with all the history and dates that he gave us. Different stops are for seeing many sites on the Hudson. We saw the 911 Memorial, Wall Street, a Cathedral, place where George Washington was inaugerated, as well as the Chelesa district. He gave you directions from each landing to the site that was near. He gave history about all the parks, bridges, etc. The taxi went close to the Statue of Liberty for a photo shoot. DC was also very informed on restaurants and bakeries. His crew was very polite and helpful. Just a tiny hint-if you need directions to get back to the taxi, always remember the pier from which you exited the taxi. We asked for directions to the water taxi and were given directions to a different service and had to walk a good distance.

What a great spot for playing in the sand! Volleyball on a beach with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop! And they had a bar! It was great while it lasted.

I've been going to NYC for years and this was my first time using the Water Taxi. What a great value! The convenience of getting off when and where you want coupled with the reasonable fare and coolness of traveling on the water makes this my newest NYC favorite!

This beach is closed. The city is now building a dog park. Very sad this went. Apparently the neighborhood did not like the loud noise from the beach.
