There is nowhere else in the world where you will see incredible dance performances ﬁlled with ﬂips and twists on the subway, or a man singing his heart out on the streets of Williamsburg or neon-lit Mario Karts lighting up the streets of Broadway at night. Here is our carefully curated itinerary for the perfect day in New York.
10 a.m.: Sailing on the Hudson River
Experience New York from the water and explore the Hudson River with Tribeca Sailing. Captain David will take you on an adventure on the magniﬁcent sailboat, Tara. There is an intimacy to being on a smaller sailboat, you are in the heart of the action. It is thrilling to watch the captain undock the boat as you begin to bob along the water and when the time is right, open and hoist the sail. Even as a passenger there is a wonderful sense of freedom.
The Tribeca Sailing tour begins at the North Cove Marina and sails past all of the glittering buildings along the New York Harbour. Captain David is a fantastic guide and lends his knowledge to the remarkable history of the sights of New York. The Freedom Tower is even more impressive from the water, as well as seeing the Governors and Ellis Islands – it is a reminder of the struggles and of those who have passed through New York to make it the glorious city it is today. Lastly, seeing the monumental Statue of Liberty, is also a breathtaking moment.
