Manhattan by Sail’s Clipper City at the Battery was built from plans which had been borrowed from the Smithsonian Institution. The newly restored Clipper City with a length of 158 feet and a height topping out at 120 feet can comfortably sail with 149 people, currently the most of any passenger sailboat in the United States! With its sweeping deck, full bar, and a diverse sail plan, this massive schooner along with its attentive crew sails daily from Battery Park, providing guests with a unique way of experiencing the sites of Manhattan from the waterfront.

Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden’s historic 83-acre campus is one of the largest ongoing adaptive reuse projects in America, with 28 structures, 14 unique botanical gardens, 10 acres of wetlands, and a two-acre urban farm.  Our mission is to provide a vibrant, regional cultural destination that offers dynamic programming in the arts, education, horticulture, agriculture, and recreation for diverse cultures and all ages while ensuring a well-managed campus for all residents of Staten Island and surrounding communities.
