Around Manhattan: A Champagne Cruise for Landlubbers

Architectural Boat Tour sponsored by cultureNOW, AIANY, and Classic Harbor Lines

Date: August 5, 2010

Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


There was no need for sealegs for those who took this land-locked boat tour of New York City. Held at the Center for Architecture, this virtual tour started at Chelsea Piers and followed Manhattan's shoreline south on its exploration of New York City's architectural sites. After a quick jaunt down to the Statue of Liberty and Governor's Island, the tour veered north again, en route to the Queens West development and Harlem. The virtual tour rounded the island and hugged Riverside Park as it returned to Chelsea.

Rick Bell Introduces the tour.
