Reviewed November 23, 2013

What a great spot for playing in the sand! Volleyball on a beach with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop! And they had a bar! It was great while it lasted.

“Great Way To See The City”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I've been going to NYC for years and this was my first time using the Water Taxi. What a great value! The convenience of getting off when and where you want coupled with the reasonable fare and coolness of traveling on the water makes this my newest NYC favorite!

“Closed”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This beach is closed. The city is now building a dog park. Very sad this went. Apparently the neighborhood did not like the loud noise from the beach.
