Took this sail around Hudson River. Beautiful views of Manhattan and up close views of Statue of Liberty. If you are a photo junkie, you've got to try this. There is even a cash bar on board. Enough room for all passengers to move around...More

As the boat rocked from side to side (it was anchored) I was thinking this is not for me. I was wrong of course. It was one of the highlights of my trip. The staff were friendly, and the sights were amazing. They have a...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
