About This New York Tour
Like they say, "When in Rome..." So if you've spent your time in "the city that never sleeps" correctly, you had dinner at 10pm, hit some infamous bars and clubs afterwards, and then, in the wee hours of the morning, grabbed a snack at one of its 24-hour restaurants before finally turning in at 5am. Congrats, you're an honorary New Yorker.
This also probably means that like most of these urban dwellers, you still haven't been to the Statue of Liberty. And though you feel like you'll get there eventually, you've got a flight home tomorrow. Grab a giant cup of caffeine, your camera, and a stopwatch–you're about to experience a long, coveted list of attractions in, as we say, a New York minute.
Sit back, but don't relax too much. You'll need to stay on your toes as a highly energized, highly entertaining, highly informed tour guide gives you the 411 on all things Manhattan. The adrenaline of Wall Street, electricity of the Brooklyn Bridge, and power of the USS Intrepid will leave you with little wonder as to where residents get their energy.
So if time is of the essence, hop aboard the express tour that will – literally and figuratively – sail you past dozens of legendary buildings, landmarks, and bridges in less time than it would take for you to get to the top of the Empire State Building. Best of all, we'll have you back on land well before your 10pm dinner reservation.
Today, Pier 54 is a concert venue and home to the annual Gay Pride dance. But back in 1912, it was the pier where Titanic survivors were discharged. Then in 1915, the RMS Lusitania, a British ocean liner carrying 1,198 passengers departed from here shortly before being torpedoed by a German U-boat. The tragedy and resulting outrage ultimately swayed public opinion – and sparked America's involvement in World War I.
Please make your way to Pier 83 at 42nd Street on the Hudson River, NY 10036
