What you'll learn in this tour class:

Step aboard the luxurious yacht Manhattan or Manhattan II for a full round-Manhattan cruise that takes an in depth look at the engineering marvels of New York City's fantastic, historic and wildly different bridges, tunnels, infrastructure and mass transit feats! Tour includes content on city planning, Robert Moses, housing and architecture as well!


This American Institute of Architects (AIANY) accredited tour is hosted by John Kriskiewicz, professor of Architecture and City Planning at Parsons and FIT.


Being low to the water and designed for comfort and small groups, guests are sure to have excellent views and photo opportunities. There is room for all in our elegantly appointed, cushioned and climate-controlled observatory, or guests may enjoy the outer teak decks when weather permits.


On this 2.75 cruise, you are treated to a complimentary beverage from the bar and light hors d' oeuvres.


Highlights along the way typically include:

  • Battery Park, South Street Seaport and the Financial District
  • Governor's Island, The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
  • High Bridge: as the city's oldest bridge, she was completed in 1842 to carry the Croton Aqueduct into Manhattan.
  • 7 swing bridges, 3 lift bridges and 4 arch bridges that span the Harlem River
  • Roosevelt Island, the United Nations Building, and the famous Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges of the East River
  • The Upper West Side and the majestic George Washington Bridge

So hop aboard the Manhattan or Manhattan II today for a cruise around the most famous island in the world!
