Missed the Astoria Ferry tour during Open House New York Weekend? Join Open House New York and Turnstile Tours for a virtual tour of the Astoria route of NYC Ferry and get an expanded view of the popular OHNY Weekend waterfront guide.
Virtually follow along as your guides board at Wall Street and take you on a live, one-hour ride examining historical buildings along the waterfront of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, and select sites at each ferry stop. Learn about landmarks along the industrial waterfront of Wallabout Bay and the Brooklyn Navy Yard; housing along the Lower East Side, Midtown Manhattan, and Long Island City; the past and present of East River’s barge traffic; and the natural and manmade islands that stretch along the river.
Tickets are $5. Register today to join virtually on Zoom.
