Day 1

Grab lunch at P.J. Clarks located steps from the marina in Brookfield Place for All-American food and a lively atmosphere. Take a trip to the top of the World Trade Center, located just steps from the docks at North Cove! It’s the tallest building in the United States with sweeping views of Manhattan from all sides. Have dinner and drinks at Beaubourg, located in Brookfield Place. Enjoy upscale French cuisine with a sunset view.

Day 2

Start the day with a stroll down to Battery Park, taking in the view of the Statue of Liberty. Venture toward Wall Street to visit the Wall Street Bull and New York Stock Exchange. End the day with drinks at the Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar, located across the street from North Cove at the Conrad Hotel. Try their Ice Pop Cocktails! Perfect to cool off after a warm summer’s day in NYC.

Day 3

Venture uptown for a walk in Central Park. Check out the boat pond to practice your sailing skills with a (much) smaller vessel. Enjoy an afternoon exploring the Metropolitan Museum of Art, located on the west side of the park. You could spend hours exploring the many halls of art, ranging from ancient to modern with everything in between. Finish the night with a Broadway show! With a show-stopping season, there are so many great shows to choose from. Ask our Guest Services for more details and show recommendations.

The view is amazing and breathtaking. It is a combination of art, technology and power of human brain. View from water shows it all.

Day 4

Have breakfast at Black Seed Bagel located in Brookfield Place for delicious artisan bagel with so many creative sandwich options that will delight your morning. Head into midtown to explore Time Square! See the bright lights and take in all the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple. Take a trip to the top of the Rock for even more sweeping views, and while you are there take a tour of the NBC studios.

Day 5

Get your steps in by exploring the Highline in Chelsea, an elevated park made from a converted railroad. Climb to the top of the Vessel (located at the northern end of the Highline) and do some shopping in Hudson Yards, the newest hotspot in NYC. Grab a bite at one of the lovely restaurants in Tribeca, a quick walk from North Cove.

To me this skyline is the most iconic one in the States, makes you think big, this city has a soul of itself, is always changing and always gets so beautiful at dawn.

NORTH COVE SAILING

Located in the heart of Manhattan is North Cove sailing school, club and community center. The facilities offer a variety of adult, children, family and corporate sailing experiences form excursions and lessons to races and events.

Great food and shopping options. Looking for non food court alternatives, check out the restaurants offering al fresco dining. On a beautiful summer evening, nothing beats it. The best part of the area is the outdoor open space for sitting, walking or just people watching. I especially loved watching the sun set.

This is an awesome location in Central Park; kind of in the middle of the park I would say and the venue looks awesome amongst the trees and a view of Belvedere Castle. We went by and heard the music as there is free concerts in Central Park Summerstage all Summer long. What a cool way to spend some time in the park. Enjoy Central Park Summerstage!
