This morning, you visit the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Center. The three 360-degree-view observation decks at Top of the Rock showcase the City’s spectacular skyline.
Then you take an edible adventure through New York City and its most interesting neighborhoods with a local guide. You will see the highlights of the city and make stops for noshing (Yiddish for “snacking”) that can include the Lower East Side’s Kossar’s Bialys for a bialy (cousin to the English Muffin) and The Pickle Guys’ dozens of varieties of pickles, sweet peppers, garlic cloves and okra.

Tonight after dinner, you enjoy a Harbor Lights Cruise. Nothing quite compares to a NYC sunset cruise with city lights glistening like diamonds on the dark water. See the sunset behind the Statue of Liberty; and once the sky goes dark, the city’s skyline lights up in spectacular fashion. The cruise through the harbor offers up panoramic views of the world’s best skyline. Not only does the Harbor Lights Cruise take you within 100 feet of the Statue of Liberty, you also will cruise right under the Brooklyn Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and Williamsburg Bridge.
