Newtown Creek Tour

The recent Circumnavigate Staten Island tour was completely sold out, and the next Working Harbor tour is sure to do the same, if only because the two hour tour of Brooklyn’s Newtown Creek is an incredible bargain at just $10.

The good news gets better because not one, but two tours of Newtown Creek are being conducted on the same day, so you have two chances of securing a place on these popular tours. Here are the details:

When: Sunday, 23 October, 2011
What: Two Cruises – 10:00 am to 12:00 noon; and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Where: Departs from Pier 17, South Street Seaport at the foot of Fulton Street, Downtown Manhattan 

Getting There
Take the A C J Z 2 3 4 or 5 Train to Fulton Street and walk east to Pier 17
Souvenir Tour Brochure with historical information and vintage maps.
The cruise takes place rain or shine. 
The Newtown Creek tour is organised by the Working Harbor Committee and the Newtown Creek Alliance
The low $10 price is made possible by funding from the NewYork City Environmental Fund (NYCEF) for Newtown Creek, which in turn is part of the Hudson River Foundation

  2. According to my sources, the tours mentioned above were the final ones for 2011. The next round of Hidden Harbor tours will begin again in the spring of 2012.

  4. I plan to return to New York for the summer of 2012, and another Working Harbor tour is *definately* on my schedule. I'm sure you won't be disappointed when you take the tour.
