Vacationers turn off the motor of their pontoon boat and switch on the music, letting the catchy notes of ?Happy? and other tunes drift across the glassy waters of Greenwood Lake. South Shore Marina rents out these eight-person pontoon boats to people who want to explore the shoreline or just relax and float in the sunshine. In two hours, you can take the boats from one end of the lake to the other before returning to the marina?s 120 slips.
With its three classic yachts?the schooner Adirondack, the schooner America 2.0, and the luxury yacht Manhattan?Classic Harbor Line lets passengers experience what it was like to sail New York's waters during a time long past. The boats, which are reminiscent of the vessels that cruised the waters in the past two centuries, show off magnificent views of the modern-day Manhattan skyline, as well as views of historical landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty. Locals and tourists alike relax and sip champagne and cocktails while taking in the unique sights New York has to offer.
The boats set sail for various sight-seeing tours, day trips, private charters for office events, and special events, including a sushi and sake sail featuring sushi prepared by Iron Chef's Morimoto. Classic Harbor Line prides itself on providing a luxurious and hospitable cruising experience.
The knotted wood floors, exposed brick, and cerulean walls at Go Row Training Studio set a rustic scene for one-hour rowing workouts that hold groups of 10. Rather than falling into a repetitive workout routine, exercise physiologist Garrett Roberts?s college-rowing-inspired workouts change up in order to keep torching calories and chiseling muscles. Sessions kick off with rowers perched atop the studio?s signature WaterRowers, which replicate the experience of open-water rowing. Exercisers then orbit a weight-training circuit, lifting dumbbells of varying weights. The class closes with students again mounting the rowers to further stump muscles and to rehearse a rescue mission to Gilligan?s Island. Garrett helms each class on Go Row?s schedule, and the 10-student attendance cap allows him to ensure each paddler performs with proper technique.
Several times throughout the day, Statue Cruises ferries depart from Liberty State Park in New Jersey or Battery Park in New York and haul groups to an iconic symbol of freedom: the Statue of Liberty. So long as the statue isn't away on vacation, passengers have the chance to hop off at Ellis Island and explore the statue's inner-workings. They can wind their way up to the statue's crown, a climb that includes 393 steps?or the equivalent of a 27-story building. But even if Statue Cruises customers choose to stay on the ground, they can still enjoy the inspiring sights of Ellis Island. Plus, the company's harbor cruises boast magnificent views, as well, including of Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, and more.
