Wow most of these reviews come from 2002, but it's 7 yrs later wow, time flies. Citysearch ahs the best things to look up and write reviews on other than google. Not fun on a cold or rainy day. I took this in the summer. I brought my digital camera,and put up photos online of the cruise. I went towards sunset on the 3 hr cruise it was fun. They had a tour guide make announcements and give you an education on the unknown facts of the city. Pretty lights, pretty sunsets, Georgeous bridges, Tall buildings, watching the water waves, you see the woolworth building, south street seaport, the empire state building, the chrysler building, the lipstick building, and citycorp building, the Queens bank tower, the statue of Liberty, Chelsea, Greenwich Village, the Colgate Clock, Jersey City, Downtown Brooklyn, and so much more. You learn alot in one day. Bring you own food. Snacks can be alittle pricey. You watch ships, water taxi's, and other boats pass by. I found out that DUMBO mean Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass. And that the Bronx was named after a family called the Broncs. I saw co-op city. I passed by ground zero. The United Nations, a tall residential black architectured building. The best part was the upper east side and passing the George Washington Bridge. A great educational experience, and if I had more money I'd go back. I'm not a tourist.\r
The gothic style buildings against the skyline and sunset is amazing like in the movie spiderman/batman. Nice scenery. Never go on a snowy day. Maybee it's closed in winter who knows.
Pros: Sightseeing the entire city
Cons: Prices and dirty bathrooms downstairs
