Celebrate the summer solstice with city sunset events

Saturday’s summer solstice gives us the longest day of the year. Make the most of the time when day turns to dusk with these sunset events throughout the city.

Sunset sail with the Classic Harbor Line, Pier 62 at 22nd Street and the Hudson River

Ever sit at your desk and daydream you were sailing off into the sunset? Dream no more: Classic Harbor Line charters cruises that sail around Manhattan, complete with booze and snacks.

Choose from two schooners — the 105-foot America 2.0 or the 80-foot Adirondack — to simply enjoy a cool breeze off the water while watching the sun fade behind the cityscape. Or, for the more active, sign up for an evening wine tasting or sample sushi and sake prepared fresh by Iron Chef Morimoto.

When: Through November, various departure times

Info: Costs vary by cruise and food and drink offerings, $52 to $124. 212-627-1825, sail-nyc.com
