Livestream Series: AIANY Industrial Waterway Tour to Freshkills Park

Group of guests sitting on the bow of Yacht Manhattan on a tour through the waterways of Freshkills park

Industrial Waterway Tour to Freshkills Park – Go to where few have gone before! We’ll sail by the Statue of Liberty, then cruise under the Bayonne Bridge, threading the NJ & Staten Island border through the Arthur Kill. We’ll see the industrial waterfront alive and thriving in Newark Bay, before we reach the world’s largest Land Reclamation Project – Freshkills Park.

This 30-year project will become the City’s largest public park. We will literally navigate into the Kill between the four capped giant mounds – home to 53 years of NYC garbage! Officially closed in 2001, Freshkills Park is the largest landfill to park transformation project in the world and when complete will be one of the largest parks in NYC. At any rate, it’s rolling grasslands, wetlands and waterways are already home to an abundance of birds, fish, and wildlife. Learn about how this environment is being recovered, reclaimed, and repurposed into a world renowned public park! Undeniably an exciting, educational, and inspiring trip will be had by all.

Highlights of this cruise include:

  • A 3.25 hour round-trip excursion co-guided by the Freshkills Park Planners and the AIANY
  • Experience a major shipping channel and see our industrial waterfront including the active ports of Bayonne & Newark Bay
  • Hear about the history of Freshkills Landfill and how it is being transformed into one of the largest public NYC Parks
  • Enjoy many close passes with giant tankers, container ships, dredge barges and tugs.
  • Sweeping views of 4 full capped ‘mounds’ covered in vegetation and wildlife
  • You’ll enjoy unobstructed views from the covered and enclosed solarium or the open decks of one of our yachts. Cushioned seating, heat & AC, a fully stocked bar, and two well-appointed restrooms are available on each yacht.
