Clipper City is a 1984 replica of an 1854 vintage schooner built to haul cargo on the Great Lakes. This is her second summer taking passengers on cruises in New York Harbor, departing from Pier 17 at South Street Seaport. She can often be seen from the Promenade (from which the above photo was taken today) while leaving or approaching her dock.
Cruises on Clipper City can be booked through Manhattan by Sail’s website, which also shows the daily sailing schedule, or by calling 212-619-0907. Fares start at $39 for adults, $35 for seniors, and $17 for children under 12.
