Discover the secrets behind one of the busiest waterways in the world. Members of the Working Harbor Committee point out Brooklyn Navy Yard and Red Hook Container Terminal, as well as working tugboats, barges and ships. The evening also includes a sunset view of Lady Liberty. Tours in the Beyond Sandy series show passengers the shoreline locations where the storm wreaked the most damage and explain how to prevent similar destruction in the future. On Aug 6, “High Seas on the Inner Harbor” floats by Red Hook, Sunset Park and the Staten Island coastline from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to the Kill Van Kull tidal strait near New Jersey. On Aug 20, “Fire Floods and Floating Containers” goes past Governors Island and then traverses the Kill Van Kull, taking it all the way to Port Newark where cars caught fire after Sandy hit.
