As COVID-19 numbers continue to decrease in the New York City area and New York State continues its phased reopening, AIANY is pleased to announce that our partners at Classic Harbor Line will be resuming a limited schedule of AIANY Architecture Boat Tours!

Classic Harbor Line will be closely adhering to the guidelines set forth by the Passenger Vessel Association, as well as following the New York State reopening guidelines. In addition, Classic Harbor Line has implemented many updates to their operating practices, including limiting capacity by at least 50 percent or more and creating assigned “safety zones” for passengers divided by Plexiglass. As always, Classic Harbor Line’s vessels feature openable windows, skylights, and access to outdoor zones. For the safety of all, masks are required for all passengers, guides, and crew, and contactless transactions are enabled for ticket purchase and check-in. Hand sanitizer will be readily available for all!

At this time, all food and beverage service is suspended, but bottled water is available for all passengers. We encourage all guests to enjoy a picnic in the park before or after your cruise with us.

Book your cruise now! A three-guest minimum is required for each booking due to the economic reality of COVID-19 restrictions. The interior cabin space will allow for 10 separate bookings at 10 very large and separated tables.

And for a sneak peak of what’s in store, join AIANY boat tour guide Joe Lengeling, AIA, for a virtual tour of recent highlights along NYC’s waterfront on IGTV.
