Cruise on the vibrant waterways of the Kill Van Kull and the Arthur Kill and into the heart of Freshkills Park in Staten Island on a classically inspired yacht. AIANY and Freshkills Park planners host this special Classic Harbor Line tour—the only public water tour into the Freshkills waterway.

Officially closed in 2001, Freshkills Park is the largest landfill to park transformation project in the world and when complete will be one of the largest parks in NYC. Its rolling grasslands, wetlands, and waterways are already home to an abundance of birds, fish, and wildlife.

About this tour: 

-  A 3.25 hour round-trip excursion co-hosted by the Freshkills Park Planners and AIANY 

- Travels through industrial waterways into Freshkills to see the development of what will be a city park three times the size of Central Park

- Hear about the history of Freshkills Landfill and how this remarkable land reclamation project is being made safe for the public

- Experience a major shipping channel and see our industrial waterfront, including the active ports of Bayonne & Newark Bay 

- Enjoy many close passes with giant tankers, container ships, dredge barges and tugs.

- Sweeping views of four full capped 'mounds' covered in vegetation and wildlife

- AIA CES: 2.5 Continuing Education Credits offered
