What You'll Get
Interested in being schooled on the history and background of the many beautiful bridges and tunnels that connect NYC's boroughs? The 1920s-style luxury yacht Manhattan provides the perfect setting for a relaxing and educational afternoon tour of New York City's engineering wonders. An architecture and city planning professor rides along to provide fascinating facts on the city's tunnels, bridges -- including the Brooklyn, Manhattan, George Washington, High and Williamsburg -- and infrastructure and mass transit feats. The almost-three-hour cruise around the island includes a beverage from the onboard bar and light hors d'oeuvres.
Highlights along the way 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
