A fun and exciting way to get around town. There are many stops along both the East and Hudson rivers. If the weather is good, taking a water taxi.

We went on the Zephyr tour and it was awesome! The tour guide was hilarious and really informative. Something's you would never know, like where they film the yacht scene in Wolf of wall street. We loved it, some great photos as well. Would definitely recommend

We wanted to do a water view of New York City, but did not have a huge chunk of time for an extended Manhattan cruise. We searched the NY City Water Taxi site and found a perfect cruise on the Zephyr for the 1- hour ride to view the iconic Statue of Liberty. We departed Seaport Village in lower Manhattan... More

This really gave us a fantastic view of NY and surrounding cities from a waterfront perspective. The tour guide was really knowledgable and fun. Plenty of room on the taxi and it was great to be able to 'hop on and off' when you wanted. Great value for money too.

We had the NY pass and hence decided to go on the water taxi. If one needs to see the important places of NY through the water way then this is the ride which takes us from Manhattan to Statue of Liberty, WTC, Wall Street view and back to Manhattan all hop on and hop off. The guided tour is... More

we found it pleasant to take the water taxi back to Manhattan after we walked the Brooklyn Bridge, so we got the top and bottom of the bridge, its a quick and relaxing way to get back to Manhattan and do some sightseeing along the way and with some explanation from a guide on board

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
