New York Guided Historic Ferry Ride with Acclaimed Author

from $50
Hopping on and off NYC’s superb East River Ferries, guests will explore the 10,000–year history of the lower East River waterfront of both Brooklyn and Manhattan. New York Times and Wall Street Journal – acclaimed author Dr. Kevin Dann will narrate the epic story of this channel’s cultural and environmental past, focusing on the lives of those who have worked and played here. Beginning with a short walk through the South Street Seaport to Pier 11, we will travel up to North Williamsburg, debark, then ferry to DUMBO for an in depth look at Brooklyn’s historic shoreline. Guests will have ample opportunity for spectacular views and photos, while enjoying poetry, song, and story from a native New Yorker who has lived and worked on both sides of the river, and written about its colorful past in books, plays, and novels. Your experience includes a signed copy of Dr. Dann’s “A Ferry Tale.”
