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!
