The North River will be hosting the America’s Cup trials this weekend!

The course lies between the Statue of Liberty and Battery Park, where sleek, carbon and fiberglass catamarans will take to the waters at mind-blowing speeds.


Starting at 2 pm., you can watch from Waterfront Plaza at Brookfield Place or, for an up-close and unique perspective, you can watch the races from the water on the historic fireboat John J Harvey!

The trip is FREE with a $20 fully refundable reservation fee – or you could donate it to the fireboat preservation fund. 100% of your tax deductible donation goes towards restoring and maintaining this historic vessel. Your support is vital!
