AIA Around Manhattan Boat Tour: NYC Bridges & Infrastructure

Chelsea Piers (Pier 62) – W. 22nd and Hudson River (Manhattan – New York, NY). Exact meeting location details will be provided immediately upon purchase of tickets.

Step aboard the luxurious yacht Manhattan for a full round-Manhattan cruise that takes an in depth look at the engineering marvels of New York City’s fantastic, historic and wildly different bridges, tunnels, infrastructure and mass transit feats! Tour includes content on city planning, Robert Moses, housing and architecture as well!

John Kriskiewicz, professor of Architecture and City Planning at Parsons and FIT is your host, on this relaxing afternoon cruise.

Being low to the water and designed for comfort and small groups, guests are sure to have excellent views and photo opportunities. There is room for all in our elegantly appointed, cushioned and climate-controlled observatory, or guests may enjoy the outer teak decks when weather permits.

On this 2.75 cruise, you are treated to a complimentary beverage from the bar and light hors d’ oeuvres.

Highlights along the way typically include:

  • Battery Park, South Street Seaport and the Financial District
  • Governor’s Island, The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
