Are you trying to see New York from a new point of view? Do you want to slow your pace down a bit so you can really enjoy every moment. Sign up for Zephyr Statue of Liberty Express tour and you can enjoy New York with the pleasant sound of waves in the background. Planes, cars and trains may get you there faster, but they can’t help you slow down and enjoy like a boat can.
Oh, the Places You’ll Go
You can’t go into the New York waterways without encountering the Lady Justice. The Statue of Liberty is a great symbol for the American dream and the opportunities offered to all. In past decades, this iconic image was an immigrant’s first experience with the United States’ grandeur. When you land on Ellis Island, you will get to see the Lady just as new Americans once saw it. This small stretch of land was once responsible for processing everyone who wanted to move to the US, and you will get to visit and explore it.
Battery Park was so named because it used to house the bulk of the city’s ammunition and equipment. As such, it was instrumental in keeping the area safe. These days it is home to old forts and historic memorials. Governor’s Island is quite a bit bigger and was once a site for the defensive works of the Continental Army. During the American Revolution, soldiers fired upon British ships to keep the young country safe.
While on our boat tours, you will get to pass the famous Brooklyn Bridge and see the massive structure for yourself. The overpass is a hybrid of cable stayed and suspension technologies. When it was built, it was a great architectural feat and it is still admired around the world. The Colgate Clock represents a different type of accomplishment. It is a relic from the Colgate-Palmolive conglomerate, which shows America’s capacity for industry and technological advancement.
While on the tour, you will have ample opportunity to explore the Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan area. In particular, you can visit the Freedom Tower, which was built to honor the 9/11 victims and their families. It is currently the tallest skyscraper in the western hemisphere and the fourth tallest in the world.
