My husband & I took the nighttime cruise using the New York Pass this summer. It was a perfect night and I would pay full price to do it again. They had a great crew who were knowledgeable, safe, and truly seemed like they wanted...More

We are a couple who are NYC born and bred. Never went to see the Statue of Liberty from Liberty Island and don't plan to. Lol. It is not necessary. In our opinion, viewing her from New York Harbor is enough, no need to climb....More

We were excited for our Clipper City Tall Ships sail during a recent trip to New York but seems we had the wrong impression of the sail. We were hoping to get some information about the ship itself (or clippers in general) and about the...More

I used my New York Pass and am pleased I chose this activity - definitely worth making the effort to fit in a sailing experience using New York Pass

We went for the 7pm sailing and it couldn't have been better. The boat is well maintained, there is plenty of seating, both in the open and under cover, there is also a bar on board. The 7pm sailing meant that we saw the Statue...More

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
