Step aboard the teak decks of the Manhattan, our elegant, 1920s-style yacht, for an educational around-Manhattan architecture tour, hosted by architects and members of the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter (AIANY).

Experience a comfortable and unique trip 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. Guests are treated to a complimentary beer, wine or champagne from the bar & light snacks as well as soda, water, tea and coffee.

On this 2.75-hour cruise, you will completely circumnavigate the island of Manhattan (passing under all 18 bridges) while taking in the sites and architecture tour designed by the AIANY.

Some tour highlights include:
  • An examination of the visionary development of NYC's 6th borough: the waterfront!
  • Memorials: an update on One World Trade Center, and an exploration of Manhattan's waterside memorials.
  • Downtown "Starchitecture:" Frank Gehry's 8 Spruce Street, Jean Nouvel's 100 Eleventh Ave. condos, and the Standard Hotel
  • Coverage of classic icons of lower Manhattan: the Woolworth Building, Wall Street's art deco spires, and the Brooklyn Bridge
  • The story on postwar urban renewal and public housing along the East River
  • Engineering marvels, such as Harlem River's bridges: swing, lift and fixed-span
