NYC July 4th Cruise- Your Views
The Statue of Liberty
You have never seen Lady Liberty from an angle like this before, so make sure you have your cameras ready. Your NYC July 4th cruise is going to sail you past the Statue of Liberty and give you the perfect opportunity to enjoy her full beauty. This monumental landmark stands at a remarkable 151 ft. from the base to the torch and 306 ft. from the pedestal to the top. The Statue of Liberty is situated in New York but is surrounded by the territory of New Jersey. This historic landmark has been a part of New York City culture since the 1800s. A little July 4th fun fact about the Statue of Liberty, she bears a tabula ansata (a tablet evoking the law), which is inscribed with the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
Another great site that you’re going to see is historical Ellis Island. This island is located in the Upper New York Bay area and served as the gateway for over 12 million immigrants to the United States. Ellis Island was one of the nation’s busiest immigrant inspection stations from 1892 until 1954. The island also became part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument in 1965 and is the site of a museum of immigration. This island is not only an NYC landmark but a historic United States’ landmark. This July 4th, treat yourself to not only an amazing sail through the city, but to a small historical tour at the same time.
The Brooklyn Bridge
Your NYC July 4th cruise is going to sail you right under the Brooklyn Bridge for your day as well! The bridge connects the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn since its construction in 1883. The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed and suspension bridge and is one of the oldest bridges of either type in the United States. The Brooklyn Bridge naming came from a letter to the editor of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle on January 25, 1867. The bridge became a designated National Historic Landmark in 1964 and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1972. You are going to see this great bridge like you never have before. Snap and capture photos of this bridge from an angle that only an NYC July 4th cruise can give you!
New York City Skyline
Perhaps the best “landmark” that you will get a view of would have to be the NYC skyline. You are going to be treated to a view of NYC and its wonderful skyscrapers throughout your entire cruise. Whether you get on board an NYC July 4th cruise during the day or at night the view will be equally as breathtaking. Watch as the sun reflects against the largest skyscraper in the city, the Freedom Tower, leaving you with an unforgettable image. Cruise at night and watch as the NYC skyline glistens against the night sky creating a beautiful starry-like scene. Your views of the NYC skyline will include many other great landmarks such as the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the South Street Seaport and much more! You will never see New York City like this if you don’t get on board an NYC July 4th cruise.
