Day 68: The Circle Line

In NYC, NYC Tours, things to do in NYC on August 7, 2009 at 8:40 pm


It’s good to be a tourist every once in a while, even if a tourist in your own city. And what better way to walk in the shoes of a tourist? Take a tour! One of the city’s best, offering views you might not catch on a typical day’s pedestrian adventure, is the Circle Line. For thirty-four bucks and three hours of your time, take a ride on a World War II vessel which ‘circles’ the island of Manhattan, past historic landmarks like Ellis Island, the old Domino Sugar Factory, Gracie Mansion and Grant’s Tomb to name a few as well as all of the city’s bridges (and tunnels) and views of neighboring boroughs Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, and the neighboring state of New Jersey to the West. The guide does his job well, not only informing guests, but entertaining them along the route. So get out your I Heart NY t-shirt and get to know a bit more about the city you say you love.
