Does the idea of a cool night and warm Jazz sound good to you? New York’s premiere summer jazz series is coming to a close for the season! This is the Smooth Cruises’ 14th year aboard The Spirit of New York, located at Pier 61, Chelsea Piers (23rd St/West Side Hwy).
Experience this one-of-a-kind LIVE JAZZ concert series as you cruise down the Hudson River taking in fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty and the breathtaking Manhattan skyline. The Cruises feature the world’s greatest jazz acts in an intimate setting. This summer I picked a different sail from last year and got to see Najee in concert, here are the pictures from my last sail.
These cruises are the highlight of my summer, and this will be my first year taking the Encore Sail, and I'm looking forward to it, less humidity will make a for a cool night, with warm jazz! =)
Here's the Skinny:
Where: Departing from Chelsea Piers in Midtown Manhattan.
When: Encore Sail, Friday, October 7th, 2011, There will be two sails, as follows:
