We had a brilliant day out on the WHC Circumnavigation of Staten Island tour last Sunday. The weather was brisk and bright as we boarded a New York Water Taxi with an enthusiastic crowd. Here are some of their photos from the WHC tour around the Isle of Staten.

It was a beautiful day on the water! Thanks for being a part of Working Harbor Committee’s 2013 tour season. We’re taking a break from touring for the holidays and will be back in the new year to plan our 2014 schedule.
