1. Boats are awesome and relaxing
Does your ideal summer night or weekend brunch involve gentle sea breeze caressing your face as the sound of the Hudson River rocks you into relaxation? Look no further.

And this isn’t just any boat: designed by acclaimed New York architect Andrew Franz, this is a renovated, three-story 160-foot yacht styled after the vessels of yesteryear with plush upholstered banquettes and contemporary nautical touches.
