Hudson River Community Sailing is a unique combination of a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and sailing club. The proceeds from adult lessons and memberships go toward funding scholarship-based programs for at-risk urban youth. These programs help kids have constructive fun and learn an entertaining hobby, all while earning a credit to help them graduate. Hosting frequent fundraising events helps the team at Hudson River Community Sailing introduce as many new mariners as possible to the singular pleasure of sailing the Hudson. Sailors also enjoy the awe-inspiring views of the Manhattan skyline that the Beatles saw just as they landed their moon module on Ellis Island.
A sea voyage is like a trackless train ride, a gamble that relies only on the principles of physics to keep your vessel floating above the water on a thin cushion of air. Unfurl your sea wings with today’s Groupon. For $245, you get a Basic Sailing 101 course (a $495 value) at True North Sailing School, located just a PATH train stop outside of Manhattan at the Newport Marina in Jersey City. The course includes a basic keelboat textbook and all course materials. Classes take place aboard a J/24 sloop with a maximum of four students per boat, ensuring that you won't get stuck rowing down in the galley.

Turn your soul’s storage unit over to Dead Apple Tours for a two-hour sightseeing trip covering some of the city's deathiest spots. Up to seven passengers will climb inside "Desdemona," a 1960 Cadillac hearse, and then be whisked away in the funeral coach to Manhattan's macabre landmarks of murder, death, and mystery. See where President James Monroe spent his last days before his patriotic-to-the-end July 4, 1831, death, and cruise past the locations where artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring each saw final brushstrokes painted upon their respective mortal canvases. Other sights on the tour include the apartment buildings where Heath Ledger and Sid Vicious died, as well as the scene of mobster "Crazy Joe" Gallo's 1972 death by mob-hit. Dead Apple Tours also highlights the grisly histories of such landmarks as the Empire State Building and the Brooklyn Bridge and explores true-life tales of mayhem and mutilation, such as Hangman's Elm and the Butcher of Tompkins Square Park—the latter of which is guaranteed to temporarily remove soup from tour-takers' diets.
