The Big Apple is known the world over as being the ultimate hub for hospitality. It’s a destination that prides itself on providing the most memorable experiences set against (arguably) the world’s most iconic skyline, so it’s no wonder that numerous couples opt for a wedding there — along with a host of pre- and post-wedding celebrations. One of our favorites? A post-wedding brunch in New York City.  The surroundings on the East and Hudson Rivers include landmarks beloved across the globe from the Empire State Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, and Governors Island, to One World Trade Center, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island. To truly immerse yourself in Manhattan and its surrounding boroughs, a post-wedding brunch on the water is an ideal option, but no typical yacht venue will do. To travel in style — and get all of the amenities you desire — choosing City Cruises is a no-brainer. Join us as we explore what makes NYC paired with City Cruises the best idea for a post-wedding brunch.
