The best way to see New York and get a full perspective of the Wonderful City is by the Circle Line Best of New York Cruise
Taking the cruise around the full island of Manhattan
All the views. From the Hudson River, Upper New York Bay, the East River, the Harlem river and back down the Hudson. Views of New York like no other

The boat docks at the foot of 42nd street in Manhattan. Our ticket was part of our 3 day "The New York Pass".
The Circle Line Best of New York cruise is scheduled just 3 times a day during the peak season. Our host Dennis has been taking the tour every few years for the last 30 years. It is a relaxing way to see all of the city, have a couple of beers, sodas or a snack from the bars on-board.
The best value on the cruise was the souvenir soft drink cup with unlimited refills. Nice cup to take home. The tour boat has a "Broadway Quality" sound system so the tour guides banter is easily taken in. (Our guide was a bit officious about us not talking while he was talking)
The Best of New York tours give you a good view of the Statue of Liberty if you do not have the time to go there directly
The tour takes about 3 hours. We recommend you consider bringing a jacket if it is not a hot day. Winds at the varying points around the city might chill you. Dennis has taken the boat in June and froze while coming down the Hudson River.
Touring by Circle is a delight for locals and tourists alike
