New York – TOP YACHT CHARTER DESTINATION
Nothing beats sailing on the Hudson River on a luxury yacht, all the way from the Upper West Side down to the Statue of Liberty. You’ll be in the best position to observe majestic skyline of this city that never sleeps.
New York – THING TO DO
New York has many convenient locations to moor your yacht; you can find state-of-the-art marinas in all five boroughs, so you won’t have to travel far to take a walk in the Central Park, see Empire State Building or attend The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Central Park is a perfect oasis of calm in the middle of concrete jungle. Squirrels, flowers, horse-drawn carriages, musicians playing their instruments, raccoons, sculptures, and, of course, people. You’ll see many locals here, walking with their kids and dogs, playing chess, rowing on the Lake. The Park is large; you can easily spend hours here, even days. There is always a lot to see and do. Visit the Central Park Zoo to see snow leopards, grizzly bears and snow monkeys, listen to black-and-white ruffed lemur calls and watch daily penguin feedings.
No fan of The Beatles would want to miss Strawberry Fields with Imagine, the circular mosaic in tribute to John Lennon in Central Park. Then there is Shakespeare Garden and Conservatory Garden, particularly beautiful in summer, with so many flowers in bloom. Central Park is as rich and diverse as New York itself. There is even a Central Park Model Yacht Club where remote controlled yacht models race every Saturday on Conservatory Water.
Metropolitan Museum is another place you wouldn’t want to miss. A treasure house of great art, a place where you can see anything, from Greek and Roman Art, to Arms and Armoury, to Egyptian art collection, to just about anything, since it covers all major civilizations and all continents.
Rockefeller Centre, Empire State Building, Lincoln Centre, Grand Central Terminal, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge, any of these attractions would be sufficient to turn a city into a touristic Mecca, but in New York, you can attend them all! Plus, in New York just walking along the streets, such as Broadway or 5th Avenue, is an interesting cultural experience.
New York – GOURMET EXPERIENCE
