Wow!  It’s been quite a few years since I’ve used this title.  The sixth boro has diverse conveyances for folks who want to get out on the water . . . from NYMediaBoat .  . to   CircleLine . . . with many options in between, too many to list here, although if you have a favorite way of getting out onto the water, please add a comment to the blog.
