|Heave-ho onto open waters on City of Water Day|
New York City is a city surrounded by water. You need to go under or over water to get to Manhattan from Brooklyn or Queens. You take the ferry to Staten Island.
On July 20th, Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance celebrates everything that has to do with water with City of Water Day. On Governor's Island and Liberty State Park in New Jersey there'll be Children's Activity Fair in both areas. Featuring food, a cardboard kayak race, as well as free boat tours!
Various boats will also be offering free tours along the Hudson. See New York City like you've never seen it before. Learn about the life of a mariner, see various birds that live along the river, or see why tugboats are so important.
