The glittering skyline of the city that never sleeps is, perhaps, best appreciated from the water, when it is possible to take in all its grandeur. New York Water Taxi’s Statue by Night Tour is a remarkably unique way to see one of America’s most recognizable skylines: from the East River. On this tour, you will have breathtaking views of the Manhattan Skyline, Governor’s Island, Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty.
The Statue of Liberty is a glorious neoclassical sculpture given to America from France in October of 1886. It was created by Gustave Eiffel and depicts the image of the goddess Libertas, who bears a torch and a tablet, upon which is inscripted the date of the declaration of independence: July 4, 1776. This iconic statue is the highlight of the Statue by Night Tour.
