Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises

In the heart of Manhattan, at W. 42nd Street and 12th Avenue, lies Pier 83, the Circle Line Sightseeing Cruises departure point. Circle Lines offers a range of tours around New York's waterways, taking in famous landmarks like the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center, Empire State Building, Ellis Island, and Bridges Brooklyn, Manhattan, Williamsburg and the Chrysler Building. If you really want to see it all, the Best of NYC Tour is the most comprehensive boat tour, circumnavigating the whole island of Manhattan.

Note that boarding for these cruises starts a half hour before departure. It's a good idea to arrive at least 45 minutes before the scheduled departure, so you can get yourself a good seat! A concession stand onboard offers drinks including coffee, tea, soft drinks and cocktails. And food like hot dogs and pretzels, so as your eyes take in the sights, your stomach can take in some good old New York cuisine.

Circle Line - Landmark Sightseeing Cruise
This was a thorough tour. Interesting to hear the history of New York and how certain landmarks came to be. Very oriented towards displays of wealth, who's who. It would have been interesting to also hear about the 'everyday' man and woman, social housing, social justice matters.
