    We took the lightrail from Exchange Place in Jersey City to Port Imperial ferry, and while leaving the lightrail station, turn left on the walking bridge enter the iron stairway up to Pershing Rd, turn right towards JFK Blvd E, turn left to Hamilton Park (about 15 min walk) and enjoying both of the amazing views and the silence of the park. If you have time and want (one of) the best views of Manhattan, highly recommend a visit to Hamilton Park in Weehawken.

    Port Imperial is two things. For the commuters it is the ferry terminal that I tend to avoid because it is too expensive and the NYC drop-offs are not very convenient (I explain more in my NY Waterway review).

    The second, which is what this review is, is the area of Port Imperial which is a gorgeous planned development on the Hudson. There are hotels, shops, restaurants, and IMO the most important thing, the riverwalk. Second only to Hamilton Park, these are the best views of midtown anywhere.

    There is parking (avoid the ferry terminal, especially on weekdays) throughout the area so if you are coming from out of town for dinner and a stroll it is convenient.

    Overall, a lovely place with outstanding infrastructure and views.

    Amazing view of New York City. Great place to take a stroll. We took family pictures so that the city was in the background

    Every town in America ...fir the most part...has a war memorial of some kind, the difference with this and the others...the view. With the greatest city in the world, and at the start of the palisades...this spot is a photographers dream.

    Went to a restaurant in West New York for dinner and drove passed Old Glory Park. It'd be an awesome date/night cap. The views of New York are absolutely stunning. Definitely worth seeing. Better than actually being in NY!

    After having taken the metro under the Hudson for a couple of times, it was time to experience the access of Manhattan over water. We took the ferry to Midtown/39th St W on a weekday, for $9 one way per person. This turned out to become a very nice experience with great views of Midtown Manhattan. We did the drive during Fleetweek, so also able so spot them.

    Celebrating my husband's birthday...this dinner cruise was beautiful...they took all the right precautions due to covid...the boat, staff, food, music and ambience was just what we needed for a night out.
    I would definitely recommend, relaxing evening the mood was already set..

    My friend and I traveled from Western Mass to see Rock Kandy and in particular - Constantine Maroulis on this cruise around Manhattan. Luckily we arrived early, the pier is within walking distance of the Sheraton where we were staying. We boarded and food was already being served and we got a table right away. The food was pretty bad banquet type food - ziti and sauce, mashed potatoes, string beans, chicken fran, salad and a roll. It was served to you and no seconds! We never saw any dessert. The drinks were in little plastic cups at $10 each but they were pretty strong. The boat was absolutely packed with people wandering around looking for a place to sit with their food. So glad we were early. We went upstairs for sail away and the first maybe hour of the cruise. It was a beautiful night and the scenery was amazing. There were no announcements about when the music would be starting...we thought we heard music but were afraid to loose our prime viewing spot on the railings so we hesitated a bit then decided to go back down and check it out. Good thing we did, the warm up guy was playing and there were people milling about so we got a good spot up front for when Rock Kandy started and finally Constantine. The crowd grew tremendously and we actually got pushed right up front. We felt like part of the band we were so close! It was hotter than blazes in there but worth it. Rock Kandy was great and so was Constantine who only sang for about 20 minutes. He did a meet and greet right after which was awesome. For $60 each, it was certainly worth it. We missed the Statue of Liberty because we were afraid to loose our great spot in front of the band but that was okay. I have to say that if we were anywhere else on the boat during the performance I don't think we would be too happy...t's very cramped in there and don't know how anyone would of seen them...you would certainly hear them, but see them? All in all we would do this again in a heartbeat!
