New York's iconic yellow checkered cab takes on a whole new look for the life aquatic. During your tour in a water-bound yellow cab you’ll get a whole new view of the city. And with the freedom to hop on and off at will, you'll get to see the whole city, and travel by water.
Grab your camera and hail this unique water taxi. Running rings around New York, this checkered yellow cab/boat hybrid will whisk you around the Big Apple.
On nice days grab a seat on the upper deck and start snapping pics of the iconic New York skyline. If the weather isn't cooperating, you can cozy up in the climate-controlled interior, as the 90-minute full loop scoots to four different piers.
Along the way, you'll see the city’s most popular neighborhoods, waterfront attractions and bridges. Highlights include the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, One World Trade, the 9/11 Memorial and many more.
The taxi departs from midtown’s Pier 83 at 42nd street and the Hudson River. It then proceeds to Battery Park, with the option to visit the World Trade Center site, including the 9/11 Memorial and the 9/11 Tribute Center. There are further stops at South Street Seaport and DUMBO Brooklyn where you can board or alight.
Additionally, you’ll also be able to get up-close views of the Statue of Liberty — one of America’s greatest national treasures.
First stop: Pier 83, West 42nd Street, Midtown Manhattan.
