Boat tours on Sailing ships in New York City

If you love sailing, then these 2 ships are a must do in New York. They’re the Clipper City and the Schooner Adirondack. Both are massive sailing ships which  offer spectacular views of the famous Manhattan skyline as it was meant to be seen, from the water – plus spectacular views of Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge.
