Around Manhattan

Around Manhattan Classic Harbor Line’s 1920s style beauty, the Manhattan, runs several cruises that circumnavigate the entire island of Manhattan. Cruise around NYC by boat and see all that this city has to offer.  The Yacht Manhattan was built low enough to fit under all 18 bridges, while giving comfort and elegance to the groups that cruise within her cabin. Enjoy the splendor of the City, from world-renowned architecture to the endless bridges, as you traverse the 3 historic waterways that outline her shores: The Hudson, East, and Harlem Rivers!  At Classic Harbor Line we offer Around Manhattan Brunch Cruises, NYC Wine Tasting Cruises, Architecture Boat Tours, and Bridge & Infrastructure Tours all departing from the historic Chelsea Piers, Pier 62. 

These boat rides are perfect for out of town guests, native New Yorkers, and tourists alike.  The yachts are not like the other sightseeing boat rides in NY Harbor as the capacity is limited to create a intimate experience for you.

AIANY Around Manhattan Historic Architecture Tour

The narration, provided by members of the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) NYC chapter, is general enough for visitors yet detailed enough for the locals and is as comprehensive as the standard AIANY circumnavigation tour. Aboard the yachts, experience a comfortable and unique tour through the Hudson, East, and Harlem Rivers from the climate-controlled and enclosed back-deck observatory or wander to the outer decks for fresh air and sunlight with a complimentary beverage in hand. The Historic Architecture Boat Tour will circumnavigate the island of Manhattan, focusing on individual landmark buildings and historic districts, as well as historic monuments, bridges, and landscapes. Among the themes to be explored are:

•    Adaptive re-use of historic structures, such as The High Line, that have been creatively reinvented for new uses along the post-industrial waterfront
•    Protecting architectural heritage, including the evolution and implementation of New York City’s Landmarks Law
•    Sustainability and historic buildings
