Great value

There cannot be a better value way of seeing the skyline up and down Manhattan. For $4 per person you can ride from the south right up to 34th street. Brilliant.

Family of four (kids 12 and 8) all thoroughly enjoyed this trip. We did the 90 minute loop on a sunny but bitterly cold day in February. You can stay warm inside but the best views are on the upper deck. Got some spectacular photos. Very good guide provided some standard and some unusual facts. A good (and shorter) alternative...

We took the all day hop on hop off Water Taxi which allows you to visit 5 or 6 stops around New York interspersed with informative and cheerful commentary. The loop takes about 90 minutes, so you can stop off, visit an attraction, then get picked up 90 minutes later. All the stops are conveniently located to the intended attractions.... More

First night in NYC we took the cruise around the bay and enjoyed the complimentary cider. It was a crisp clear night and the lights sparkled in the water. We got really close to Lady Liberty and got some good photos. It can get cold out there! Wrap up warm.

Great way to travel. We had a New York City pass which allowed you to hop on and off for one day. We used it from midtown to downtown to the 9/11 tribute which then only took few minutes walk from pier.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
