We did this architecture boat tour around the entire island last year with great success. Join us on this ‘abridged’ version. This 1.5-hour cruise covers major sites from all eras visible along the Lower Manhattan (below 59th) and Brooklyn waterfronts. Tour features include the Brooklyn Bridge, Governors Island’s new park, and recent work by noted local and international “starchitect”, landscape architects and engineers. Relax aboard the swanky 1920s-style yacht Manhattan. Our guides are members of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), who designed this tour to spotlight some of Manhattan’s most noted structures and exterior styles. Continuous narration covers architecture and engineering landmarks from all eras as well as current urban planning and environmental issues impacting urban waterfronts. Discussions include the planning visions for both reclaiming the post-industrial waterfront, as the “6th Borough,” and addressing rising sea levels. A focus on the adaptation of the High Line and its role in the development of West Chelsea and the story of post WWII urban renewal and public housing along the Lower East Side.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Cancellation Policy- If you cancel within 72 hours of a meal event there are no refunds. Restaurants MUST plan in advance  for large events and I guarantee a headcount based on YOUR RSVP. I am held to that guarantee and often pay a deposit or the full amount in advance. Ticketed events (tours, shows, ANY non-dinner event) are non-refundable within 7 days before the event.  Also note: MENU’s listed here are subject to change!
